    Barred Rock, I think. I'm not experienced in that breed, but have read that the pattern is lighter colored on the males. Hope that helps some. [​IMG]

    It does look like a Barred Rock. The comb is pretty big, but the coloration looks dark like a female to me. How old is it?

    Maybe (that's M-A-Y-B-E-,) it is a hen.

    Definitely a roo. I would guess it's a marans due to the leg color.

    Roo for sure at that age, I agree the legs are rather pale.
