    I have three straight run barred rocks that are 6 1/2 weeks old and would like to figure out what gender they are. I'm thinking all males, but I have no experience with barred rock chicks.

    Despite the black on the front of chick C's legs, I do suspect you are correct in your verdict of three cockerels.

    Unfortunately, I also agree that they are all males. :(

    Yeah that's what I was pretty sure of, but my husband is quite the optimist and wanted some other opinions, especially about chick C. Thanks!
