These are some pics of my week old Barred Rocks. Does anyone have any opinions on sex?
Small spot = Hen
Big splotch = Rooster
Hen Left - Rooster Right
My guess. It's sort of hard to tell.
Guessing roosters, both don't seem to be dark enough to be pullets.
third one is the only pullet i think?
Serioulsy??!! Oh boy, that would suck. I hope you guys are wrong, and I mean that in a nice way.
I second StrawberryHouseMouse's answers; exactly what I was thinking for each one. Sorry, if you wanted all hens.
Well it's not that I wouldn't WANT roosters, just living in the downtown core, next to a school in a city that doesn't allow chickens in the first place kind of puts the damper on that.
Shoot, now what?
I have three little kids attached to two (or three) potential roosters. The hatchery I got them from doesn't guarantee sex on Barred Rocks and not on orders under 30, meaning...I'm screwed?
I wonder if I wrote them, maybe they would give me some type of credit. It cost me $25 for the four of them so...
Now to me, the two in the second picture look a lot alike, although you're saying that maybe the one on the left is a hen?
Well if at least two turn out to be hens then that is good...here's fingers crossed. I welcome all other opinions as well.
