    This is my first time raising backyard chickens and I have been looking up information on how to determine if they are all three hens. My Barred Rock and Gold-laced Wyandotte pretty clearly match the descriptions of hens, but I think my my 4 month old Rhode Island Red might be a rooster... I could use a second opinion!

    This photo is Roseanne at 2 months...

    And both of these photos are Roseanne at 4 months...

    She looks like my year old RIR hens. Their comb and wattles look very similar to that.

    You have a pullet. I wouldn't be surpised if she started laying within the month, judging by the size and reddness of her comb.
