    Ok I would like you to meet one of our BR named "Pat". We've named her "Pat" because we don't know if she is a Patricia or a Patrick.

    Here are her/his other pullet mates plus Mariah's bum (our only Brahma)

    Here is a better head shot of "Pat"

    As you notice, "Pat" has a more devoloped comb and pointy tail. There isn't any crowing but there is such a difference in their features it makes me wonder if my pullet is actually a roo. They are probably 15 weeks at this point. What do you all think?

    I'd also say Pat is a roo. With barred rocks, roos are typically lighter in color, as Pat is, and also look at the comb, compared to that of your others.

    Quote:Nope, no chance. The coloring and the saddle feathers are coming in too. Sorry.
