    I just did my first hatch and it looks like most of them are Roos.. I'm hoping atleast one of these RIRs is a girl... anyone have any thoughts??

    They are too young. Try again when they are about 8 weeks old.

    Nothing is looking particularly roo-ish in these photos, but these photos are not the best for gender assessment -- and the birds are still a bit young for a valid assessment unless they were just showing blatant comb/wattle color, etc.

    There are neither definite rooster signs or definite not-rooster signs.
