    Quote:Agreed. I'm no expert but I think you are spot on with the sexing.

    I hate to disagree but the first pic looks like a pullet to me
    I have a barred rock Roo that is only 5 weeks and it has a much more pronounced comb ?

    Wyandottes have rose combs, though so there's quite a difference between that and single combs (which I think BR have?). The red comb and wattles say cockeral to me, BUT I'm not an expert as I only have BLRW and have only had them for about 2-3 months.
