Im hoping she is actually a she. But the comb has begun to get pretty red. Please help!
Oh and She is 6 weeks
With that feather/leg color, looks pullet to me. In my experience, BR combs can get pink pretty early on them. Made me nervous the first time I raised some.
Do you have any other barred rocks of the same age? The females tend to be more black with white speckles and the males will have a little more white coloring in the feathers.
It looks like a pullet to me but I was sure about one of my BO chicks until it crowed at about 16 weeks old. Looking g back now it was obvious long before that but I was very new to chickens at the time. My small flock is almost a year old now and I still learn new things everyday.
Thank you all! And she is my only barred rock! I love their coloring and personality so I couldn't bear giving her up if she was a roo!
Any other takers?
I didn't want a rooster but I fell in love with my BO roo after his 1st crow and decided to keep him.
I'd give anything if I could keep a rooster, but I live in a residential area, I don't believe we can have them
It's always seemed odd to me that roosters aren't allowed in residential areas. I love the sound of a rooster crow. Barking dogs can be much more of a nuisance. Also hens can get really noisy themselves. Mine usually aren't too loud though sometimes more noisy than my roo. My neighbors hens ate always chattering and singing about their eggs. I think it's cute though.
