    Hello all, just wanting to check on rooster/hen issue with my "Barred Rock" and Light Brahma.
    We thought the BR was a Wyandotte until folks on the forum id'd her.
    Bought from hatchery rep at local feed store. Hatched March 4 so about 15 weeks.

    Here's Plinky the Brahma. She does have a comb with three rows. (also a nice look at Pinky the Leghorn!)

    More of a side of Plinky's head and stature.

    And here's Winky the BR. Comb and wattles turned red and developed much faster than others (though of course they are other breeds).

    And last a close up head shot of Winky the BR and Blinky the RIRed.

    Thanks! I appreciate your input!

    I say Plinky's a girl. The barred rock looks darker than a cockerel would...girls usually have more black than the boys, so I'll go out on a limb and say girl for that one, too.
