    Here are my two barred rocks. They are both 7-8 weeks old. The one on the left is lighter (although not nearly as light as some others I have seen on here). Its ears and beak area are much more red than the other. Also, its legs are darker. They are both **supposed** to be pullets. What do you all think? Can you tell from the picture? Thanks!

    They could both be pullets, my BRs had small combs like those and they were all pullets.

    I would guess pullet. My BR roo had a huge comb by that age and it was very pale and pink for a long time, but much bigger.

    Thanks! I hope it is a pullet. It definitely doesn't have a larger comb, just different coloring. Hopefully there will be no crowing around here![​IMG]

    I'd say girls. They look exactly like my BR pullet. She's my friendliest chicken!
