    I am new to the site and also new to this chicken raising thing also I have two barred rock chicks and can't tell if the are pullets or roos? The farm store said they are pullets but I'm not completely sure

    Only one picture of the feet showed up. Could you post some of their heads? Also, how old are they? It's very hard to tell at a young age.

    They are only 3-4 weeks old they don't have much of a comb yet their feet seem to be a little bit darker than others I've seen on here I do have a little buff Orpington chick that' had a comb that is a little larger than the rest just hoping I don't have a batch of cockerels

    I won't have time right now to do that but what exactly will I be looking for when spreading their wings apart?

    After reading more and more up on them the chicks have more black on them now than white bars looking more like pullets I hope but I guess time will be the real answer
