    Here are my 4 barred rocks. They are 2-3 weeks old. I'm pretty sure the first one is a little roo and the last one is a pullet. I'm not sure of the other 2. Any guesses?

    I hate to say it but according to a buddy of mine if there is a white spot on their heads they are male. This proved true with my hatching.

    So far, the first one looks like your only cockerel to me, but it is too young to tell for sure. All Barred Rock chicks have white spots on their heads, both cockerels and pullets.

    It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the first chick is almost twice the size of the other 3. And his white spot is a lot larger than the others.
