    A single barred male will have a non barred feather somewhere that give it away . Double barred will not have that . Barring has a dosage effect making auto sexing possible .

    I like that fencing option if we decide to go that route. Do you use metal or wood fence posts?

    I had some sex link roos that were barred. They were a cross between a Welsummer roo and Barred rock hens. They were cute. I was working on Welbars but sold the first generation so never got to finish that project. I would have kept a roo and put it in with Welsummer hens but never got to it...
