    I got two Barred Rock pullets yesterday, 18 weeks old. One has wattles and a slightly larger comb than the other. It doesn't look like a roo but I just want to make sure. Does anyone have pictures of a Barred Rock rooster? TIA

    I love seeing pics of Bob! Shows that two BRs who are not show quality can produce, on occasion, kids that are pretty darn close to it! Hawkeye and Lexie did good that time!
    Here are Bob's younger brothers, Zane, Dutch and Mace:

    Zane, who is crippled:

    Dutch, who is much like Bob and their dad in body type:

    Hawkeye and Lexie did indeed do good; nice barring on Bob. Mikarod, those are nice birds. Who breeds them?
