I have plenty of him!

 

 

And there is the hen who laid the egg:

 

 

She is one of the lighter RiRs I had, but honestly, if I had not been physically present to see her lay that egg, I would not have believed the chick has any RiR in him/her.

The results out of my RIR Rooster over Comet Hens led to the hens looking like RIR minus the black tail feathers, the roosters were nearly identical in color to the Comet hens, with the littlest bit of white trim at the bottom edge if the neck feathers. I believe if someone would do it, that the cross between either or of these back to a RIR  would result in a nearly pergect replica of a RIR. Just my humble opinion.

That is how my little one looks.  He/she is 12 weeks old.  I've been thinking it was a rooster because the comb and wattles were HUGE at 4 weeks, but I didn't have any other chicks with his hatch, so I have nothing to compare.  It's just him and the rest of my flock is turning 1 year in April.  No crowing yet, so I can't be certain.
