    so the pics kind of suck, but i think one of my barred rocks is a cockerel..what do you think?

    This one is all of the chicks- the one on the far right (next to my 3 week old Cornishx chick) is the one i think is cockerel- large red comb growing and waddles appearing under beak that are much more prominent and red than the other on the left
    [​IMG]
    This is head on- the comb is looking pretty big..the other one has some comb growth but its yellow, not pink, and much smaller. (ps..don't mind my 3 y/o who has just come out to the barn to tell me that dad let her eat all of the xmas oreos- with red filling!! ahhh children!love them!)

    THis one is a profile- not really noticeable comb from this angle- still a lot of baby fuzz in the way..but it is noticeably pink!!
    let me know what you think!

    Because of the dark feathers, I'd say hen.

    I am gonna agree. Cockerel. That early none of my BR pullets had red combs. Darker color throws me though.

    I say cockeral too because of the red comb. But my barred rock roo was ALOT lighter than that. So I am not 100% sure
