okay. So I have an ee/barred rock x barred rock. Barred rock is the rooster.

Will the head spot gendering work for it since both parents have the barred rock gene?

Do you mean will looking at the shape of the head spot work, or do you mean will presence of a head spot work, like with black sex links?

The latter won't work, since that only works with a barred hen bred to a non-barred rooster.

The former might work, if both parents are barred.

I've had several hatchery barred rocks. Large spots, small spots, spots running down the necks, etc., etc., etc. All turned out to be pullets/hens. I can't tell male/female from head spots.
