    Wiggly indeed! I've got three 2 week old barred rocks at home. My mother wanted to get a picture of me holding them all and before she could get her phone out they all jumped off my arm and ran to the back door!

    I'm pretty sure chick A is a pullet. Dark leg shanks for sure, and you can still make out the spot on the head. Chick B is harder to say. It still has some darkness to the leg but more so only down by where leg meets the toes. The head spot is not as well defined, either. I'm probably 70% certain you've got a cockerel for chick b.
