Yep he's barred. I say he because I can already see his comb growing AND the barring is too light to be a pullet. Generally, pullets have dark barring. If you ask speckledhen, she can give you a good comparison picture.

oh dear that's not what i wanted to hear, i knew the comb was growing already but that one was the darker of the 4 chicks. i have one that is balck and 4 that i guess are barred. so if the dark barring is pullets that mean i might end up with 4 roos

If you post pictures of the other ones that you think are barred, we'd be glad to help

Going off the statement Year of the Rooster said about the barring being darker on females.............then I say you have 2 girls and 2 boys in the group shot.
