    I purchased 12 pullets from Tractor Supply and I have long suspected one of my Barred Rocks to be a rooster. "He" has been more aggressive and bold from the start and the crest and waddle have developed more than "his" sister. I've heard males are also more white than females. I am brand new to this but want to know if I need to find a new home for him as I was not planning (nor do I have the needed permit) to have any roosters.

    Thanks for your thoughts! I've posted first pictures of the suspect and then of his sister for comparison. 20190524_080625[1].jpg 20190524_081342[1].jpg 20190524_080323[2].jpg 20190524_080624[1].jpg 20190524_081246[1].jpg 20190524_080420[1].jpg 20190524_080422[1].jpg

    By the way, they are about 6 weeks old.

    Your suspicions are correct.
