    I have come to the conclusion that my Barred Rock sweetie is a little boy. *SIGH* Just lost my only BR hen (my favorite chicken) and while nothing can replace her, I had hoped this was a girl too. Oh well......
    Here s/he is and I though I would show off the rest of my growing cuties too. I am getting a bit nervous on a couple of them. Please kids....lets all be girls!!!!
    Star, the Barred Rock in question:

    How old are they.. that BR has a very rooish comb and face. My guess is they are 2-3 weeks old.

    The BR is a roo I would say, I never had a BR pullet with such a big comb. Could you make a pic of its wings? The wings of Females are darker then males.

    Edit: yes, I will go grab her...errr......him and get some wing pics. [​IMG]

    hmm, this little baby has me stumped, going by body parts I say comb= boy, feathers=girl, legs= either, lening more towards boy, comb color= girl so as of now I say you still have a chance of her being a girl Just keep hoping! [​IMG]
