On one forum someone told us the barred rock with the spottier pattern on the head looked like a rooster. We cannot have a rooster where we live. So I was wondering 1. Does anyone have an opinion on if the coloring pattern matters? FYI the one with the single spot is growing wing feathers and the other not so much. And 2. If it is a rooster, will it be big enough to be a meat bird before it starts crowing? This is our first foray into chickens, and that actually feels like a mean thing to say to me, but we have to either find a home for it is it's a rooster or cull it.
