    We finally decided to add alittle more color to our flock. We have twelve white leghorns hens and four brown leghorn hens. (almost two years old)

    We purchased 6 sex-link baby pullets and we select one barred rock from the straight run cage.
    1. How can I tell if barred rock is a male?
    2. Is there a website that shows you what to look for?

    If the barred rock turns out to be a hen, it would be cool. However, I have a gut feeling it is a male.

    Has anyone had success with getting a 50/50 mix of males and pullets?

    Happy Easter
    Good luck with your flock
