    supposedly all the barred rocks are pullets... but we'll see. thats what the lady told me, but they do all have dark front legs. of course she also told me that she only had two barred rocks left (the two austrolorps) so i guess some people are in for a surprise..
    it wont be the end of the world if one or two are roosters but if 5 or 6 of them are, Cyn jinxed me!

    (that one giving me the eye has to be a roo, but he has some dark legs and is of equal darkness of the others... *biting nails emoticon*)

    Beefy, one has a larger headspot, but isnt colored like a cockerel, so you're probably safe. Lexie had the biggest dang headspot for a girl I'd ever seen, all the way down her neck, even was cockerel-colored, but we all know how that turned out. I love my BRs, as you know. I was just out in the lawn chair with my 16 week old cockerel, Zane, sitting sunning himself on my shoulder. Yep, that boy is heavy now! He just doesn't realize it.
