    I was asking the gender on a different post and a fellow member suggested that this was not a Barred Rock like I was told. Any opinions on the breed? Thanks!

    I'm thinking it's not a pure barred Rock, but a mixed breed or black sex link cockerel. But whatever the breed, it's a little boy for sure.
