    Hi everyone! The attached pics are of my new barred rock that I bought as a 20 week old laying hen. He/she is about 22 weeks now but with that comb I'm wondering if it's possible it's a roo. I'm a chicken newbie so please be gentle! Lol

    That's a pretty pullet. If she's not laying now, she will be literally any day now. Her comb is normal for a sexually mature hen.
