On some guys, underdeveloped shoulders could be due to the fact that they get hit TOO much. Shoulders are incorporated in many movements, and often aren't given enough rest time to grow!

Perhaps your not training them as efficiently as you could? What does an average shoulder day look like for you? Exercises, Sets & Reps?

I don't know your routine but you may want to rest your anteriors a bit and focus on Standing Upright Rows.
I did this starting with standing upright rows with dumbbells one side at a time very close to the body with strict form and my shoulders have rounded out very nicely. I recently switched to the barbell version and they work my shoulders nicely and I'm lifting more weight than ever.

I've just started getting into the rear deltoid exercises a lot more and honestly its making my shoulder look more "fuller", you know a nice ball shape. I tend to do 6 sets of rear delts just because it takes me about that much sets to actually feel it getting sore.

yep,theirs three heads to the shoulders,so therefore to be truly rounded,they all have to be developed.It would be like a half circle(shoulders) being divided into three parts.If one of the three parts doesn't have the same flowing curve as the rest,it's no longer a true half circle

I'd honestly have to say that rear delts are probably the most under-developed thing on me, they are very hard to look really nice. What do you think is the most under-developed body part on most people?

My rear delts get worked alot from pressing movements, rowing movements, an upright rows. My front and rear delts are good it is the outside head that needs the attention it never gets pumped it always the other two heads. I wanted a more rounded look for that head of the deltoid.

The upright rows are hitting primarily the front delts also, and secondary stimulation targeted at the middle head.
Your rows are technically hitting your rear delts, but that also depends on how high (close to your sternum) your rowing, assuming your talking about bar bell rows. If you're doing Db rows, you're stimulating the rear delts a lot less with a traditional neutral grip Db row. If your grip is pronated and you're pulling out and to the side, instead of back and up, then you're hitting your rear delts. Otherwise, you're still not really hitting them.
You're not doing much work for your rear delts according to your workout.
Focus on side lateral raises if you want to hit that middle head better.

It is definately,without question,the calves.I don't have the best calves,but i work them very hard.i have put on a inch since working them and i started measuring them when i started to notice them looking better.I have heard people say they gave up and some people don't even try.It is verry annoying and frustrating how slow they respond,but luckily im stubborn/bull headed enough to say "f**ck you calves,i own yall,and you will get bigger"But i also see a mix of underdeveloped quads,shoulders,backs,and forearms(kind of in the calf category)
