    I recently bought 2 Barred Rock Chicks from TSC. I was told they were both pullets but 1 is looking more like a roo to me. I'm new at this so any feedback would be very much appreciated!

    How old are they? They look like pullets to me at the moment, but they are quite young to tell for sure!

    The store said a week old when I bought them a week and a half ago but they are awfully big compared to my other ones bought at the same time and were supposed to also be a week old. Judging by other pictures I've found and a chart to use I'm guessing more towards 3 weeks old.

    The 1 with the bigger white bars on the feathers is the one I'm thinking might be a male. It acts very dominant compared to the others and it's pretty feisty. Always wanting to fly out and sitting on top of water and food containers. I could very well be wrong though. Like I said I am new to this. Thank you for your quick reply.
