    Think I may have roo in my midst!
    August 8th we took delivery of an assorted 25pullets. Just 3 days shy of being a month old, we have noticed one of the Barr Rock's has really feet and the comb is more developed then the others. Now, I know it's only 30 days out, is it possible to know it's a Roo this early? Pictures will be up loaded tomorrow.

    Barred Rock cockerels are considerably lighter in color than pullets. I have heard it described as a pullet being mostly black with white bars and cockerels being mostly white with black bars. It would also help if you could post a picture and then you could get a definite answer. [​IMG]
