If the barred one hatched in March I'm going with pullet. A 7 month old cockerel would definitely be obvious! Also in regard to the lack of tail feathers... I'm thinking she probably is in the process of molting and the tail feathers are growing back. I had a couple hens molt their first year so it's not unheard of.No the barred was born in March. I was sooo hoping they were all girls. How can you tell the sex by looking at the pictures? What do I look for when determining the sex?
Thanks for your help
