It is suppose to be a pullet.... 4 weeks old.
I say roo, its awfully light for a pullet.
Kind of hard to tell in the pic if its comb is red or not....a close up would be helpful and a top view of the body. While it is pretty light color feathering...my Roo had really red comb by 4 weeks.
Going by how my Barred Rocks look, born around May 1st, I would say your chick is a rooster. He is much lighter in color than all three of mine.
Here are some more pics... In these pics are suppose to be SLW pullets, barred rock pullets, golden buffs/RSL, RIR pullets and 1 RIR roo. I have 18 of them total.
If it makes any difference this is hatchery stock.
Here is a link to some pictures of my chicks. You can see the difference in your Barred Rocks and mine. The lighter colored ones, with more white, are supposed to be roosters. That's what my father-in-law and others have told me.
I was suspect of this from the beginning because I noticed this one was lighter than the other ones. I have a SLW that is the same way, one is lighter than the others. I really didn't need all these extra roosters. I guess I will just raise them up and butcher them. I have a hatching plan and a RIR is what I want for my rooster. Just so I know is BR X BR = a Barred rock?
