    I bought 5 RIRs that were all supposed to be Pullets back in September. These two look like possible roosters to me? What gender are they? About what age do you think they are?[​IMG]

    Bird on the left is a pullet, bird on the right is a rooster, I cannot help you with age.

    Yes, this seems right. They are also production reds. This means that while they aren't true Rhode Island Reds, they'll be very productive layers, well, all except that cockerel. LOL

    Then pullet next to the rooster seems to have a large red comb, so you should be expecting eggs sometime soon! :)
