Can anyone identify Barred Rock roos as chicks?

    pullets have wing feathers that is long, the next one would be short, the next one long...etc. Roos' wing feather lengths are all the same.

    There are people here who can sex BR's by the size and shape of their spots. Post a pic of the tops of their heads and someone will be able to tell you. It's not 100% though. They're way too young to tell for sure. And don't go by noise, my noisiest chick is now over a month old and is very definitely a pullet.
