    Is 4 weeks old enough for me to guess pullet? The one behind is the same age but I see a big comb![​IMG][/IMG]

    Not sure what you mean by F2?

    Aren't Rhodebars supposed to be autosexing?

    Did you use a Rhodebar hen or rooster for breeding?

    If you crossed Rhode Red roosters over Barred Rock hens then they should be sexlinked. If so these two would be cockerels.

    The one in front looks like a pullet to me. The other one (behind) is looking cockerelish, though.
