    I need opinions!! I have 3 rhode island reds approx. 7 weeks old. Two of them have bigger, redder combs and are taller. The other one has a much smaller more yellowish comb and is shorter and a little bigger in the breast. I got all three at the same time and they are all for sure the same age. I think that I have two roos and one hen. What do ya think?

    #1 (I think roo)

    #2 (I think roo as well)

    #3 (the one on the right I think is the hen)

    My RIR's looked the same, they are `10-12 weeks now, yes I believe you are correct.

    Ive got 11 RIR's and they all look like #3. They are all supposed to be pullets and since yours are only about a week older I guess I got lucky.
