Then someone in one of my groups threw a wrench and said the darker one looks like the roo. I’m new to this so I can only go by what I read and waiting. Would like to here opinions.

    Light one is a roo I'd say. Huge legs and red comb and waddles too.

    The lighter one looks like a cockerel, large white barring, big bright red comb, and yellow legs are big indicators for this breed.

    Light one is definitely a Roo. Barred rock cockerels are lighter in color with lighter feet as well where hens are darker with darker feet.

    The Barred Rock is a cockerel, the other BR in picture is a pullet (darker black bars, dark wash over legs)
