    I've read many forums about barred rock sexing however just looking for opinions on if you guys think its a hen or a rooster. These two are 20 weeks old now and were sexed both as females. One has a lot bigger, and redder comb than the other. However the coloring in their feathers and feet are the same. I will attach some pictures, thanks for any suggestions!

    Pullets. There is some variability in comb size. The redder one is probably going to lay first.

    Both look like pullets, tho I don't think I have ever seen a one with such big wattles. Maybe it's the look that is trending nowadays :confused:
