I know I need some pics - but its hard to get these chickens to sit still to get a decent enough one... ill try again later today. I have 2 barred rocks, same age 16-17 weeks - they came from townline hatchery, I'm not sure if they are from the same hatch or not; I bought them via the local feed store. Over the weekend I rushed out to make sure the hens had enough water because one of the barred rocks faces seemed so pale in comparison to the other i thought maybe she wasnt feeling well from the heat. She has more black, less white barring, a pale peach/pink face and almost no bottom comb at all. My other barred rock has a very red face, more white barring and a larger very red comb (not a huge comb, just larger than the other)... is it possible one is just maturing slower than the other? They are 16 weeks old. Other than what is listed they look very similar. I have an EE rooster that is very much the dominant and crows all the time. I have not heard a peep from the barred rocks other than some clucking... but I assumed they were both hens, so honestly havent paid a ton of attention to their individual noises. I thought by 16 weeks I would know who is who.... did I miss something? Could one just be behind the other in maturity? Ill post pics soon.
