    I hatched 3 barred Rock chicks and I think they are all roos but am not sure can anyone tell? Also the last chick was from the only light blue egg I recieved, supposed to be Americanas but I am not sure what do you think?

    there's a possibility that chick #2 is a hen, the others are definitely roos

    the 4th, I don't know, but from the size and lack of comb development I'll agree that it's a hen

    I was really hoping I was wrong about the BR I guess I will be eating good in another 12 weeks lol. I am glad the ee is a hen, it was the only egg (other than my gimpy chick to hatch and it was the only blue egg in the bunch.) Hopefully it will lay blue eggs as well.

    Way too early to tell.

    A little too early, methinks. I personally think they all look like hens.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    BR's are roos, the white one looks like a hen, but those rosecombs are tricky to me.

    I had two I thought for sure were roos and so did a lot of others, then one day I saw them lay eggs. I wouldn't give up until I hear them crow or its really obvious.
