    I would like to know too - I have two RIR's that are 3 weeks old now and would like to have a picture in mind of what a roo's head looks like....

    IMO, I think the bottom two are hens. Watch the one in the first pic to make sure its a roo. I'm not an expert so I haven't gotten this sexing thing down yet [​IMG]

    1st one looks like a roo.....but would need a brighter pic to see the saddle feathers and the bottom 2 are hens.

    I'm thinking they are all pullets. The first one may be very close to laying with the larger, redder comb and wattles.

    That first one's a little iffy, but the other two look like pullets (just like mine, same age) to me.
