I'd love some help figuring my RIRs. These two are my favorites and so friendly! There is only the slightest blush of pink in their combs (looks a little red, but I have a red lightbulb in the brooder)and no wattles yet. Thanks!! RIR#1 RIR #2 Also wondering if the few white feathers means that they are mixed? Maybe production reds?

I'm leaning toward the first chick being a cockerel and the second chick being a pullet, but they're a little young to be sure. They do appear to be Production Reds, not heritage purebred Rhode Island Reds. Assuming they're pullets, you should get lots of brown eggs from them. :)

I agree.
