Any opinions as to the sex of this almost 5 wk old purebred BR chick? Thanks
I'm not 100% sure, but I'm leaning toward cockerel.
Given the light barring and the size of the comb at 5 weeks, it looks like a cockerel. Female Barred Rocks typically have darker barring.
Update: Even though I thought it might be a cockerel (& so did the responses I got) its a pullet.
Thanks for the update. It just proves once again that for every rule there is an exception where chickens are concerned. )
