    I have an 11 week old barred rock who is supposed to be a pullet, but I'm not so sure. Can anyone help out?

    Also, how accurately can you tell his/her gender just from this picture? If you need any more angles, please let me know! Or is there a way of telling that can't be found from a picture?

    Any help is greatly welcomed!

    Male. My BRs will be a year old in July and the combs aren't that big.

    Do you have another BR to compare it to?

    Cockerel, and I would guess black sex link instead of barred rock.
