    The first bird is definitely a cockerel as that is a whole lot of pink for a baby with fuzz still on it's head.
    How old is the barred rock? It appears older than the first as it is fully feathered on the head so I am debating a bit between the pink being cockerel and the tighter/more even barring being pullet - age would be key - and a shot without something blocking view of most of the bird would help as well.

    I am going with hen right now but does it act like a rooster and try to fight other little roosters? Mine do.
