I got 3 barred rocks sold as females from the feed store 10 weeks ago. I’m starting to suspect Larry here is a boy. I noticed a couple of weeks ago this one was starting to get a redder face than the other two, but I was hoping I was wrong. Unfortunately it’s starting to look more and more like she is a he, continuing to have a redder face and waddles are more developed than the others.

Also including a pic of Curly, who’s the same age, for reference.

I hope you’re right. This is my first time with barred rocks. I’ve been concerned because the one in the first pic looks different than the other two, but if you both say it’s a pullet then I won’t stress about it. We already have 2 roosters and don’t need another.

I agree shes a pullet. I have 1 girl who has turned redder faster than her sisters. But her comb is still pretty small and her wattles are small. By 10 weeks a cockerel would be much bigger.
