    Both are cockerels. Big combs, and the coloring of the barred rocks is more light with young roosters.

    Plymouth Rock = Barred Rock, and yes that's what they are,

    Their barring looks weird.....I think they maybe BSL cockerels. Where did you get them?

    If they're sex-linked chickens that means male. Barred rocks have them though and doesn't always mean they're male.
