    I think three weeks is too early to tell. Sometimes a boy will announce itself by having a huge comb, and the start of wattles at that age, but even that is no guarantee. mine are all 13 weeks old and I'm STILL wondering.

    These are 3 weeks old. They all turned out to be female.

    I think these were from around 3-5 weeks. She is a girl. She is actually What they call a Production Red, but the farm store said it was almost exactly like a RIR. I am no expert but mine looks an awful lot like photos of RIRs that I've seen. Good luck.

    Here she is at about 15 weeks

    I think 3 weeks is too early to tell also. I wasn't really sure that my RIR's were pullets till just a couple weeks ago! The youngest is 18 weeks and the oldest ones are 20 weeks. These are pictures of them at 13 weeks and then at 16-18 weeks. In other threads, people have mentioned that their RIR roos had larger combs and waddles by 8 weeks so maybe in another month you might have a better idea?

    13 weeks....
