    Looks like a cockerel to me, judging by that big, pink comb.

    Here are my BR or BSL packing peanuts, 17 days old:

    Yep, HE was hatched by Ellie's Lacy from eggs I sent her across the country. Ellie, you have your rooster, for sure now. [​IMG]

    Oops, Jossanne, I forgot to say thank you for the pictures. That helps. I am trying to learn how to tell the difference like you folks do.

    Definitely a little boy. It think barred's combs turn red quicker than other breeds...at least that has been my experience. I can usually tell on them within 10 days.
