    Ok so out of four chicks we really thought we had three hens and one rooster, however the older they get the more suspicious two of them become. These are some not so great photos of Waffles and Mary Brown. If you can't tell from the photos could you please give me a list of what I should be looking for? They're 12 week old Barred Rocks.
    Cripes, I just realized I don't know how to post photos...isn't there a way to do it from an iPhone?

    Ok, so the first two photos are of the same bird, I was trying to get a better shot with three of my kids milling about...the last photo is another one. My concern with the first one is those suspicious black feathers appearing in his/her tail...

    Quote:The second photo I'm calling a cockeral.

    The third photo I'm still debating. But from this particular photo I'd call her a pullet.
