    This chick is 10 week old ...... a cross between a barred rock hen and lavender orpington roo.

    Please vote pullet or roo.

    I vote roo. I have a 20-something week old BR pullet who still has a tiny pink comb, but my BR guys were all noticeable by their combs and wattles at around 7 - 8 weeks.

    That is a sex-linked cockeral. A barred rock hen covered by a solid roo gives solid/non barred pullets and barred roosters. So, boy, even if that comb wasn't screaming it [​IMG]
