    I found another post of barred rock and it seems mine are boys too. [​IMG]
    I only have 10 girls so I will need to re-home if these are really boys. Ideas anyone? If boys, no charge to anyone wanting one in the Phoenix area.
    They are right around 15 weeks

    Yep all boys [​IMG] Sorry about your luck. [​IMG] If you are looking for Barred Rock pullets, one way to tell is by the white dot on their head as chicks. Females have very little dots while the males have large ones, though occasionally there will be an exception, but that's the general rule-of-thumb.

    Thank you. My DH surprised me with them from the feed store. I really love them but just can't keep 4 roosters. I guess I could sweet talk him into another coop and run. [​IMG]

    Yep, all roos. Thats too bad. I am the same way as he is as I picked out 12 straight run chicks from a cluster and they were all so pretty but 9 maybe 10 are roos. That just figures. Oh well, its an excuse to get more when these hit the fridge, lol
