    These 2 Black Australorps are 7 weeks old. Roos? [​IMG]
    And I'm pretty sure the one on the perch is a roo, but is it a RIR or a Production Red?

    Both Australorps look like roosters. A pullet wouldn't have that much comb and wattle at this age. As for the red bird, it looks like a hatchery quality Rhode Island Red. There is very little difference between a Production Red and a hatchey Rhode Island Red. Both are often mixed with other birds to create great egg layers.

    all roosters. The red bird looks to be a generic hatchery red bird--production red, cherry egger, etc.
