I have 4 barred rocks and I’m not sure if they are all pullets or if I have any roosters.

I was told by a few that I have at least 1 rooster but he/she doesn’t have any waddles. Yes it have a bigger darker comb and lighter feathers but it also has darker legs/feet than the typical yellow that I have heard. Please help!! My husband doesn’t want any roosters and I don’t want to give him/her away without knowing for sure! They are or will be 4 weeks old in 3 days.

    You do have 1 male, the lighter colored one with the larger comb and the waddles peaking out.

    Thanks, I was hoping he was a she! My husband doesn’t want a rooster! But maybe I can talk him into keeping him and see how things go!
