    I have two 2 week old barred rocks in my brooder (from a hatchery and supposed to be pullets) and one is looking suspiciously like a roo. I don't need another roo. [​IMG] Here are the two babies. Let me know what you think.

    Chick 1- possible roo

    Chick 2 - most likely a pullet

    They are too young. Generally the male chicks have the spot on their head, also yellow legs and gray barring with wider areas of white. Females have black barring and narrow areas of white.
