    It is a barred rock. I am not 100% sure of gender but I think hen.

    Definitely a barred rock, not sure about the sex, it is a bit ambiguous. Maybe Rooster.

    Barred Rock rooster. The hens' combs don't get that big.

    This is a job for Speckled Hen! (waits to hear the Superhero music cue up *L*) Great-looking bird you have there, be it rooster or hen. [​IMG]

    What color are the legs? If the legs are yellow it is a barred rock.

    That cracked me up this afternoon, thanks, LOL! Well, it could be a Barred Rock (yellow legs) or a Cuckoo Marans(white legs), but at 11 weeks old, the pullets rarely have combs that humongous. Here are some of my BR pullets at that age for comparison:
