to have barred rocks that can't be sexed by their head spots! I had one BR hatch 5-6 weeks ago. It looked like a pullet because it had very dark legs, but the head spot was very 'messy'. BR pullets should have a small, well-defined head spot. That one turned out to be a pullet. I've got 2 other chicks that a bantam cochin hatched. Going by their head spots, they should be 1 boy and 1 girl. Again, they are both pullets. Why can't I ever get birds that do things the way they should? I guess I should be happy, at least the 3 chicks I've hatched have been girls!
