    I'm thinking that Akoko is a roo, but the first one I'm not sure.

    Both are roos I'm afraid.I just hatched some off awhile ago and my boys are the only ones with combs that bid and red.But they are very friendly,cant feed them without them running under your feet.lol

    Just playing the game, but I am pretty sure you have 1 of each. Tail feathers usually give it away.

    I'm guessing both are roos based on the size of their wattles and combs at only 10 weeks of age. I don't have any RIRs, but my production red's comb & wattles were smaller than that at 19 weeks of age (see pic).

    I'd say 2 roos. My RIR pullets have basically no comb redness at that age.
