My roo (henry) is a delaware, the hens are barred rocks. it there was way to sex by color?
Not that I am aware... I could just be oblivious though...
If the BRs are pure breed, they can be sexed as youngin's by noting the spot on their heads and the leg color. Roos normally have yellow legs with minimal or no black shading and hens have the black shading down the front of their legs and feet. I forget which is which about the head dot. One sex will have a more rounded, well defined dot and the other will have a more scattered less defined dot.
