My Barred Rock is about 2 months old now, and I'm not quite sure if it's a girl or boy.
I'm new to chickens but based on my reading and research I would guess roo. Seems too red to be a 2 month pullet.
I'm very new as well. But I posted a picture of some of mine, (Rhode Island Reds) and one of the others on the site said that one of mine was a rooster, another one is an early bloomer. The one they said was a rooster is really read in the comb and under the chin. The early bloomer is still no where near red.
If it is about 8 weeks, it has an awfully big and red comb and waddles, I am guessing roo.
Definitely a hen
Yep, it is a hen. If it was a roo, there would be more white feathering. Hens have more black in them just like yours.
If this is any help, this is he/she at 3 weeks
my grandfather swore bye this method and has worked for me hang the bird by its feet upside down a roo will try to fly up and a pullet will hang there with her wings opened hope this helps......
Im very sorry to disagree, but your bird looks to me like it is definitely a male. Also it is not a barred rock. It has feathered legs, so I am thinking a Barred Cochin or a mix.
100% a cockerel, and looks like a barred cochin not a rock.
