I have two new barred rock chicks that i bought at a feed store. They were sold to me as pullets but one looks lighter with more white and the dot on its head is larger

This is what I believe to be a male and female barred rock 3 week olds. "He" is very very white composited to "her" plus he has wattles where as none of the other 4 have anything at all yet.

I managed to catch "him" today! Here's a couple of pics. This one is the lowest on the totem pole in the dog crate. I feel bad but at least there are no more pecking marks!

This one is so white that I'm sure it must be a boy, but I'm hoping not because its my favorite out if the BR!
