    Hey all. I was on here when I first got these Barred Plymouth Rocks, and it was too early to tell gender; I'm wondering if it's any easier now. I need to let my landlord know if I got any roosters when I bought them. They're from a TSC, and they're about two and a half weeks old. Thanks ahead of time for your help!

    We also got a bird that is clearly not a Barred Rock, even though it was in their bin. I've heard it could be an Australorp or a Jersey Giant, so if anyone has input on this one, I'd appreciate it! (Gender as well if at all possible!)

    The Rocks all look like pullets. The last one I would lean towards cockerel. I forget which color soles Austrolorps and Giants have.

    Australorps have white soles and Jersey Giants have yellow.
