I've gotten pretty good at sexing my chickens. But this last group of barred chickens has got me a little stumped. I'm hoping someone can help me.

#1 and the one looking at the camera in 3 look like they have the skinny neck feathers coming in. If you can handle them, just grab them and check for those. Rooster feathers are always a safe bet.

Both are the same bird, he is a camera hog. Lol!

I would kind of expect a rooster to have a larger comb at this age, but the feathering and stance makes me say cockerel.

#1 is definitely a cockrel. He has started chasing my girls and pulling neck feathers
