    how can you tell?

    His barring is more white then black, barred rock pullets will be more black then white. He has the long, stringy hackle feathers coming in on his neck and it looks like he's starting saddle feathers as well. And his comb. All that added to the fact that he's crowing, well, he's a roo.
