These barred rock chickens are just shy of one month old. I have been reading around and it sounds like I could have a rooster. I hope it's a hen but what can you do? I've heard the lighter colored barred rock can indicate a rooster, but I've also heard people have light barred rock that lay. Anyways here are the pictures of the 2 barred rock side by side. with a couple other girls poking their heads in for the camera.
