    How old is this bird?

    Is it a Barred Rock? Do know who the parents of the bird are? Strange questions I know but it may help others that are looking at the photo to give you an opinion. [​IMG]

    When this bird came home with us it was approximately 4 weeks old. Barred Rock that grew exponentially fast than its siblings.

    Another pic of the bird in question:

    Here is one of its sibling chicks, not nearly as big.

    I have two BR myself and I have been told that the male BR are more white then the females so I am going to tell you it is a pullet.

    Its a pullet... But is that a single comb or a pea comb? Not clear enough for me to see well. BR(single) or Dominique(pea)

    I'll need a little clarification on the comb question. Is that some indicator of gender or something else?

    At four weeks, i'm going to say that's a boy, but i'm still not clear how old he is now. Can you clarify?

    The type of comb indicates breed, not gender. Yours appear to have a single comb.
