    4 weeks ago we got 3 Barred Rock chicks from a local feed store. The gentleman we got them from told us we could bring back the Roosters. After doing some research I think we may a Rooster in the bunch but, I'm not positive.

    Anyone want to take a guess?

    These were taken earlier today as we were putting them back into their indoor brooder.

    #2 for sure. #3 probably. Male BR have whiter barring and area quite easy to identify. Take a picture not holding them.

    Thanks for the info! We took them back to the gentleman we got them from and sure enough all but one was a rooster. So, we moved our hen to the outside coop(with a heat lamp inside) and got 6 baby chicks (all pullets) from our local Tractor Supply.
