    I'm new to this and I have read thread after thread about sexing chickens and I am not sure all the way if I have a pullet or roo. He/she is almost five weeks old. The black and white Barred Rock is the chicken in question.

    Looks like a cockerel with that much white. Time will tell for sure.
