    This baby was bought in a pullet bin. Not to sure at 5 weeks, or a little older what the gender is? Thanks [​IMG]

    Well, I'm not Speckled Hen, but if that's a barred rock, that's a roo.

    Really? I'm going to cry now. I can't tell you what bad luck I've had with getting myself a nice young pullet! Anyone out there want to sell their really nice, realy sweet, really nice laying Barred Rock?? Didn't think so. I always think it doesn't hurt to ask. [​IMG]

    Sorry. People do advertise their BR laying hens all the time on CraigsList here though. They get tired of them, sometimes right at point of lay, and just want to get a little money back. Unfortunately, you then have the quarantine issues and risks associated with unknown chickens.

    Quote:Yes, and I do worry about that. I actually did have one man in the past though, that asked me if my chickens were well, and I would wear some shoes that I never wore into my coop area...I bought one of his birds.

    Thanks all..and thanks Cynthia for showing up.

    My RIR on the other one looks to be a roo too.

    So, have already found a place for them both. How lucky not only for me, but for the birds..going to a real nice area with some real land to wander on.
    Man I'm jealous of those folks that can have roosters.
