    I have a 6 week barred rock and I was wondering if it is a hen or roo. It is a hatchery one if that helps.[​IMG]

    I think that's a pullet, but a better picture would help. Profile shot of the bird standing naturally in good lighting.

    Think it's a pullet - having trouble with old eyes ? if it's grayish or black. Legs look like female
