I would say its a bit young to sex effectively and it would be hard to describe with such a large group photo ^^

A proud member of 4h and a strong bearer of the Pacific Northwest and its Cold, not to mention a chicken mommy of 3 Cochins, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 2 Bantam EE, 1 RIR/EE Mix, 1 Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, and 2 bantam OEGB's, a Black Bearded Silkie and a double laced silver Plymouth Bantam!

It's too young to sex accurately at 2 weeks. I would suggest re-posting its pic in about a month. By then it's gender should be much more obvious.

ok I tried feather testing at 1 day which I initially sexed as pullet, but these batches are different from when I got some from a hatchery.  I sexed them accurately.

Sounds like you were lucky on sexing the first batch. Feather testing is not normally reliable unless the birds are specifically bred for that which is not the case with hatchery quality RIRs.

I agree.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
