Could anyone please tell me the breed and gender of this chicken? Thank you!
I Agree!! Barred Rock It Is.
Thanks! Hen or Roo?
Cockerel / Rooster
Roo for sure. Hens generally have more black on them, and roos have more white.
Heres a hen.
And a roo.
Illia, that is what I am beginning to believe too. The pointy feathers and the comb being so red and growing lol. No eggs yet, but funny thing is . . . It doesn't CROW!
Barred rock roo. Maybe he's just slow to find his voice, or is he in with another roo? Sometimes folks say the younger roo won't crow with the older roo around. Personally, that's not worked for me, I just have a lot of roos crowing!
When we first got "Him" he was in with an older more dominant Roo. We gave the older Roo away and he's been with 7 young hen's for the last 6 weeks or so. No crowing, thank goodness. I guess I will have to find him a new home, as I'm not supposed to have roosters. But if he never crows? Lol. He's a nice chicken, if anyone is interested. We're in western NC. Thanks for all the help!
