well i dont think they are a feather sexed bird but every time i have it seems to work. but a cockerals wing feathers will be sorta even and the the pullets wing feathers will sorta be long feather short feather and so on basicly in the primaries. like i said before i dont think barred rocks are that type of breed. got any pictures? lol
Why don't you type that in as a search.....sexing barrred rock chicks? I think it is the spot on the head that means roo. I only say that because my grandaughter picked out two that both had spots on their head...named one Patches because of it and both ended up roosters. But I did read later that was a way to sex them....the spot.
It's not completely accurate but Pullets are darker then males and get their feathers faster then males. They may also have a dark wash down their legs that the males get less often. The dot, I think, is supposed to be well defined.
Males are lighter, grow slower, and get a pink comb at 3-4 weeks.
