    Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me sex my four Rhode Island Red's I picked up from my local feed store. They said there was a 95% chance for females, but I think I might have 2 roo's and 2 pullets. The pics are not the best, but I hope they help.

    First is of one that were pretty sure is a pullet, she has feathered well and developed well, we call her Arti

    Then there is Chimay who we are pretty sure is also a pullet. She has developed the quickest, and she is also the calmest

    Here is the first we think might be a roo, Yoko, he/she has developed the slowest

    Last but not least is Rose, who we think might also be a roo. He/she has developed just as quick as the larger 2, but facial structure makes me wonder

    Dang, I was hoping that wasnt the case. One of the possible roo's has a great attitude, but the other not so much. I dont know if I could get rid of them, I have become attached. What to do now?

    I would like to know which ones turned out to be pullets and which ones roos since I have some that are 2 weeks old as of yesterday and am anxious to see how many pullets I have. I'm sure hoping for a majority of pullets. ;-)
