    EE 1 and 2 are roos, 3-RIR is probably a roo, but I am not 100% sure on that one.

    Quote:most definitely, #1 & #2 are no doubt cockerals.....only one I am NOT sure of is the RIR, only because no obvious indicators and i have never owned them [​IMG]

    one and two are both cockerals

    three.....unless you can find the spur bump on its leg, then it would be a roo. If not, then its a pullet.

    Hmm, at 7 weeks I'm gonna say roo for that RIR. I have two RIRs right now (one is a PR), and they are just now getting combs that size at 11 weeks old.

    Here are mine at 10-11 weeks...their combs are not as big as your bird's
