    A friend donated a couple of rir eggs to my classroom hatch. Only one hatched. I think that this is it. Can anyone tell me for sure and whether it is a boy or girl? It is 4 days old. Thanks.

    It is much too early to tell the sex of the chick. Only time will tell. [​IMG]

    Too early to tell cockeral or pullet and it does not look like a RIR chick...they would be alot darker.....my rirs were always dark....

    4 weeks is a good time to post pics and its easier to tell gender...

    Here is a recent pic of the little chick. After some research, I am thinking maybe he/she is a sex link????

    Well, probably a roo from the pictures. RIR are much darker so it could be a sex link.

    With that much of a comb at 5 weeks I'd say roo.
