    Here's a few pictures of my 6 1/2 week old Barred Rock. I posted a pic a couple of weeks ago and a few people said it look like one might be a roo. I've looked at all the pictures & posts I could find and I believe their all pullets but I worry about all the pink around their faces!! [​IMG] They all look pretty much the same where as I can't really tell one from the other!!

    Sooo whatya think??? [​IMG]

    Thanks All!!

    I only see pullets. My Barred Rock hen had a comb an waddles like that at an early age. I found a photo about the same age.

    Thanks...

    I had read a post when I was searching that said their pullets didn't get any pink on them till they were older and I was like "Oh my goodness ALL mine have pink on them, what in the world was I gonna do with 15 roos!!" [​IMG]

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I see mostly males. Their coloring is really light for females.

    They look like mostly pullets to me, but can't see them all very well. By six weeks, you usually see pretty big combs on the cockerels in this breed-- one in the last photo could be a cockerel, but again, I cant see them well enough. It's really essential to take photos of BRs in natural sunlight without glare so we can see their true colors.

    Here's a six week old BR cockerel I used to have, then a cockerel and his sister:
