    In my flock all of the barred rocks are around 6 months old, they have wattles and combs and sare laying or at the getting ready to lay. I have one hen that's a lighter color then the rest, comb and wattles haven't grow and see has tail feather that look like half saddle feathers. She's alfa hen as well. Whats up with her?

    Can you post a picture? Barred rock roosters are lighter than the hens. Any possibility that it is a slower maturing cockerel?
