    S/he has no pointed feathers except on part of the tail. The waddle and comb are more pink than red and the part that is closest to the neck still has a little yellow to it. This is my first Barred Rock[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks for your comments. At least it seems like my neighbors are okay with one so I'll keep him unless he becomes aggressive. How can you tell he's a little roo?

    The tail feathers are "placed" differently than a pullets.
