    Hi yall! [​IMG] I have a little delima I thought I had 2 barred rock pullet's however one is developing its comb a little faster than the other, faster than the rest of the flock too and it is the youngest. I estimate it to be about 6 weeks old.

    Is there any other signs? I read males are lighter than females and it is mostly white while the other barred rock is mostly black.

    Pullet or cockeral?? [​IMG]

    The other barred rock is in the back ground, much darker than the one on the perch is.

    I am so sorry. We hatched our own witha broody hen and the one I fell in love with, Flora everybody on here seems to agree is a Roo.....Buhuuu.
    I am still calling it a Flora but we will see, it might just be a Florence ( are there any other male names starting with Flo..?)

    I don't know. Don't give she/he away yet. I have 3 barred rock who developed their comb at differing rates then each other and a lot quicker than the buffs, EE's, and RIR's.

    Pics of mine at 5.5 wks and 7 wks.
