    Hi Y'all! My name is Erika...I'm new to chickens, but I do need opinions from you seasoned chicken parents out there! Is my barred rock a Hen or a rooster? Here's periwinkle!

    Let me know your thoughts! We are in city limits so if she does end up being a "he" I'd like to start looking for a new home!

    Thank you!

    Welcome to BYC! That's a mighty big comb on that little guy. I'd lean towards a roo!

    It varies. I don't think he'll crow yet, though; I think you've got a little while longer, but you should probably start looking for a home now just in case.
