    Hello everyone! I'm new to this and was hoping anyone could help me determine the sex of my 3 BSL's? They are 5-6 weeks old! Two have lots of good feathering, while one barely has any! I was able to snap some pics to help! Thanks in advance! [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Your bird looks female.

    However, it's not a barred Rock. It's probably either an Australorp or a black sex link. Barred Rocks are black and white striped.

    Those look like Black Sex-links, if so they are pullets.
