    I have two RIR chicks about 6 days old. One is almost twice as big as the other. I am wondering if she is a he. I can take pictures of the two to post but what part of the bird should take pictures of?

    Ooops. I think I posted in the wrong place. Should be under baby chicks...

    Actually I think you posted the right place, but it is way too early to tell.

    Sometimes the roos develop more slowly and feather more slowly. Combs will be redder on the roos but not for a few weeks.

    Good luck.
