    I think one is a rooster let me know I was thinking of buying one later on anyway would save me time. What do you think? Growing some flabby skin under neck and on top of head looking more mature than the others. They are just now 5 weeks.

    Better pictures would help. It doesn't scream cockerel from what little I can see, though a side shot without wire in the way would help to make sure.

    his legs look thick like a rooster's, and his feathers look like a rooster's, and he doesn't have the coloring of a barred rock hen, so I'm gonna say rooster.

    Looks like a pullet to me. The one in the center is a silver laced Wyandotte, rest are barred Rocks.

    Are you sure? Take a look at his legs! You can't tell by looking at the comb; some roosters don't have very large combs (like mine) [​IMG]
