Hello BYCers! I have two Barred Rock chicks that I think are approx. 3-3 1/2 weeks old (feed store- not that specific with age). I have read in other posts that Barred Rocks are easier to sex early than a lot of other breeds, so I was wondering if anyone wants to take a guess at mine? The first two pics are of one, the last two pics are of the other. Thanks!

Yes, they both look like pullets. The smaller the dot the better and dark legs both say pullet. I'm not seeing the legs on the first one, but they should probably match the 2nd one's legs.

I will try and take a picture of my roo tomorrow. You can tell by the color. He is way lighter colored then my pullets. They are about the same age as yours. But yeah I say pullet too.
