    I thought the red one was a hen, but I saw it step on that barred rock like it was a young rooster.
    They are 12 weeks old. The red one is a Barred rock/White Laced Red cornish cross. The barred one is a barred rock crossed with unknown.

    I wonder if that means that any reddish colored ones that are the result of White Laced Red cornish crossed with barred rock would be roosters. Because I have another one (out of younger hatch) and its sibling is white and MUCH smaller than that red one. Make sense?

    # 1 definately looks like a roo. But I'm thinking # 2 is a pullet, I don't see any saddle or hackle feathers.....
