    I'm confused on the gender; I thought it was pullet; but now the black looks to be more prominent in the barring... 11 wks..


    the barring; are we looking at the neck only for the majority of the barring? or the entirety/as a whole?

    Lol. Obviously, I'm not expert on any breed, but I read that pullets have yellow with black feet.

    ok and just for future reference; is this because the white barring is more prominent on the neck than the backside??

    That is a pullet, no doubt. Have had many BRs. Her coloring is proper for a pullet with the black more prominent than the white, so she looks darker than a cockerel would. You are looking at her entire body. Her barring is a bit uneven and fades out in places because she is not breeder quality. That's common.

    It's the overall color, not in one particular area. Pullet.
