RIR 3wks old - Roo??

To early to tell???
post #2 of 4

Generally I'd say too early to tell. But because of the difference in feather color, and less feathers coming in (usually RIR males feather out slower than their sisters), and the slight difference in comb size, I'd say the one on the left is a male and the one on the right is a female.

Males feather slower then females? Oh boy. I just posted a post about my 2 RIR pullets and the one I think is a male took weeks longer to feather out when the one I think is female was fully feathered by 6 weeks.
