    My family has been very taken by this one chick. Well see I smooshed this one with the water bucket (pervious post) and it has not only survived but has become the biggest best chick we have. This chick runs to us everytime we walk by the brooder. He/She is very sweet and loving. Can you help tell me if this is a reggie or a regina?

    Thanks!

    I am no photographer but I have a bunch of pics!

    It is a bit early to say for sure, but looking like a girl to me. A boy's comb will usually start growing above the 'head fuzz' by now and turning slightly pink.

    I have RIR's also and I agree with hinkjc, looks like girl to me.

    Yep, looks girly to me, too. Legs aren't especially thick like a cockerel's would be.

    I agree with everybody else-but it is still early-looking very promising
