    HELP PLEASE!! My rooster is a barred rock, my hens are all red sex link cross. I incubated my eggs and got white chicks with a few black spots and allot of black barrred chicks. How do I tell the sex of these chicks ??? they are a little older than a month old, and I am guessing that all the barred rock might be roosters. Is that possible?

    It's likely you'll just have to sex each bird individually, as they mature, based on leg size, comb, wattles, etc. Their general color and appearance , ie some are barred and some are white, by itself, won't be much of a guide.
