    The Barred Rock x is looking like a cockerel. Agreed? I had one like this last summer - most people guessed cockerel - and it turned out to be a pullet. Its mother is PB Barred Rock, its father PB Silver Laced Wyandotte x PB Barnevelder. It is almost 4 wks old.

    For future reference, you had a sex link cross. The non-barred father (and not white) over a barred mother will throw barred males and non-barred females. You can sex the chicks at hatch, the barred males will have a white spot on the head and females will have a solid dark head.
