Hi

I got 2 Barred Rock chicks a week and a half ago.. Well I noticed one of their combs is more developed than the other. Do you think this "pullet" is actually a roo??
Here is the one with the larger comb, whatcha think ??

You don't have to go by combs on BRs. Look at this article about sexing Doms, same principal as BRs. Has good pics. I'd have to see the entire chick in natural light so I can see the color, the head spot, and the legs.

That second chick looks more like it has a rose comb, not a single comb, so it may be a Dom. Looks like male Dominique in that pic, but I need pics out of the red light; have to see the back of the head and the down color.

I have 5 BR pullets and 1 Roo, if I was judging by the comb I would've thought I had 4 Roo's. Thank goodness all my females were black striped and my male was more of a dark gray color with stripes.
