RIR Pullet or Roo?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

Please forgive me, I have posted the "Roo or pullet?" question once already on this particular bird, Little Red,  at 7 weeks old, then updated at 9 weeks. 

I received lots of great advice at 7 weeks, to wait a little longer. When I updated at 9 weeks, I got 1 pullet/1 roo vote. I think Little Red was just too young both times.
Well, Red is 11 weeks old today (She/he was born on Valentine's day:love). I have all new pictures, and am STILL going back and forth on roo or pullet. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Aside from updating, I promise to make this my last post on this topic for this bird. 

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. HOPEFULLY she/he is old enough to get some hard answers now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If needed, I can try to get a picture of Red's "sister" for comparison. She's more flighty, and a heck of a lot harder to get a good picture of. But Little Red does have bigger feet/lets, and is a tad bigger than her.

From my little experience of 3 RIR pullets now and 2 males last year I'd say cockerel. My 3 month old pullets have no where near the comb or wattles.

Yeah those shiny feathers on the back says boy, but I see why you were a little confused.
