    Hi, i bought a dozen chicks from my feed store about two weeks ago among those i got 4 barred rocks - they were all supposedly pullets, but this little guy/gal has yellow on his chest and face and my other 3 barred rocks are only black & white, and the other 3 also seem to be alot "plumper" then he/she is. I know its waay early but im still curious!

    Usually I'd say too young, but yes, sorry, cockeral. Oh my gosh the feet are GIANT! And the comb is starting to develop too.

    Looks very Roo-ish to me, because of the way it stands and it's legs.
    Whenever we raise meat chicks, we find the cockerels have WAY bigger legs & feet than the hens, in order to support the weight they will eventually gain.
    [​IMG] trust me though, roosters are great, especially if you raise them with a lot of attention, they'll be VERY nice!
    Happy crowing [​IMG]
