Here is a picture of my two leghorns. I got them 3/5/18. One developed a crown quickly, and started growing a lot quicker than the other. The other one is barely starting to get a crown and quite a bit smaller than the other. They are 5 weeks old as of 3/28/18. Could anyone confirm if I’m right thinking 1 is a roo and 1 is a hen?

Definitely a boy. And it appears that at least one of your Barred Rocks is also male.

agree with @junebuggena
also, I'd watch that little cockerel... if he continues to grow exponentially faster than the other one, it may be a Cornish X not a leghorn.

I’ll try to get a picture of both of them standing and post it later tonight. I’m not going to keep any roosters so I guess someone will have a cheap chicken dinner at my expense! ;)
