    hi! thanks for all the info and help. you all have made this a great resource for beginners like us.[​IMG]
    we recently got our first two chicks. we purchased 4 week old rirs- females specifically because our neighbors will complain about roosters.
    now, at about 6 weeks old, we're worrying that one might be a boy. any help is really appreciated. here are some photos. tia!

    That comb looks like a rooster. Do you have a comparison picture of him with the others?

    Ummmmm... my 16 week old RIR pullet doesn't have a comb as developed. Hers is that large, but the points are not as prominent. I suspect you have a Glen.

    thanks for your replies. I'm afraid in comparison to the other chick, she/he looks even more like a roo. here's a photo of both
