    The top one is a barred rock, the second is a red-sexlink male.

    Both are males.

    In the Barred Plymouth Rock:
    He has curved sickle feathers that are seen in males. He also has more distinct barring than females.

    In the Red Sex-Link male:
    Males are mostly white with a small amount of yellow and brown. Brown is generally on the shoulders and back area. He also has curved sickle feathers and has elongated and pointed hackle and saddle feathers.

    Is that barred bird a bird with PINK feet? Or did the camera wash out yellow legs?

    Pink feets and legs do not belong to barred rocks.
