    Hello everyone. Please tell me my RIR's are pullets! If they are, why are their combs and wattles so different? Check out the picture below......

    Thanks to everyone that responded to my question. Not really happy with the answers. Thought I was getting 6 RIR pullets when I bought them at Tractor Supply. I definitely don't need any roosters! [​IMG] They are approximately 11 weeks old now. These are the most friendly, tame, calm chickens I've every been around. Especially the one that has the largest comb and wattle and is probably a roo. When I go into the backyard he/she runs to me, follows me around, and if I sit down he sits on my lap. Please tell me there's still hope that they're pullets!!!

    Well, those RIR's pullets can get pretty big ol' combs. And at 11 weeks if they're boys they should start crowing soon, or at the very least would likely be fighting a lot. You should know soon. And hopefully they're girls and a month or 2 away from laying. Be sure to let us know, as a lot of owners of RIR's get paranoid they have all roos.
