    Hennyannie=how can you tell? I have 2 Barred Rocks. One is a bit bigger and has a far more pronounced set of tail feathers. We are wondering if it is a roo.

    100% Pullet!

    Quote:Your best bet is to post pics in your own thread for advice/guesses at their sexes! There's just more to consider than tail feathers!
    Site requirements are that you have ten posts prior to holistic images so you may need to use photobucket or another image hosting site (or go say welcome to a few other newbies)

    [​IMG] to you both by the way!

    Just checked out the Dominique sexing site. Based on the info there and the photos, my guess is they are both girls. It is fascinating that you can tell with such accuracy from their head spots when they are so young! I am learning so much.
