Are these hens or roosters?
Only one picture is there and he is definitely a rooster.
Only one picture is there an
-Is this a rooster too?
How old is the BR? Same age as the other one in the picture? How do their comb and wattles compare to one another? Does one have definitely more developed comb and wattles? From what I can see, I would guess cockerel.
Yes, the barred bird which is probably a Black Sex Link, is definitely a cockerel also.
yeah. looks like a cockerell. i'd say it's a barred rock or dominique. i have black sex links and they are solid black with a little red on underside of neck feathers
Black sex link pullets are black with red in the hackles. Black sex link cockerels are barred.I agree with Rhodebar Lover that the barred bird in the picture is likely a black sex link cockerel. The first is also a cockerel, maybe partridge Rock or Welsummer.
Just curious - what characteristics does the barred cockerel have that makes you say sexlink instead of Barred Rock? Not trying to be argumentative, just trying to learn more.
The pattern on the wing - the darker primaries and the whitish pattern near the shoulder/elbow. IMHO to me It looks messier than the markings of a Rock. I could very well be wrong, I am far from an expert on barred birds.
