Hi, I know this is an old post. But I have RIR who are about 13 weeks now and look exactly like yours when your RIR was of that age. Did it ultimately turn out to be a Roo? or do I still have some hopes of mine to be a girl?

Tamaro, sorry I do not remember getting an email message telling me about your post, otherwise I would have updated thread to give you an answer.

 

Poli, yes he was a rooster, a rooster that started crowing about 3-4 weeks after those pics were posted.  A very protective and aggressive rooster that used to attack me almost every time I went into coop by the time he was about 6 months.  Unfortunately at about 7 or 8 months he became ill and died (that was about a month ago).

This is my RIR at 9 weeks - the middle one - can you tell if it is a hen or roo?
