    Is this a pullet or roo??? Jimmy is 12 weeks old. I'm almost posative he is a roo, but he doesn't have wattles and sleeps with my other rooster who is only about 1 week older than him. What do you think??

    I vote roo too. Pretty guy! Is that a muff I see? If it is, then that's why he doesn't have wattles [​IMG]

    Roo. If the comb didn't seal it, the curved tail feather did. Plus I think I see the start of saddle feathers in the first picture.

    I would think at that age with a comb that big, it is most likely a roo. I'm not very good at sexing the barred breeds though.

    ok so i learned something new!! Roosters with muffs do not have wattles. Thanks for the helpful information, i thought he was a roo. I just think it's funny that my roosters are so friendly, but i guess it's because they were raised together and they are still young!
