Am i seeing things or is the RIR already developing a rather prominent comb?
Those combs look normal to me for that age of bird, regardless of gender. It is too young to tell their gender by comb appearance.
Agreed. In would post again in 5-6 weeks. By then their gender should be much more obvious.
Totally agree no worries about those combs...and good news...the RIR is feathering pretty fast on those wings, which often indicates female. (Although only birds that are bred to be feather sexed are feather sexable, and that can only be done at a day old)...BUT the girl RIR's feather in pretty fast while the boys take a bit longer.
And RIR's girls do get pretty bumpy in their combs, but they will stay pale yellow, while the roo's take off red pretty fast.
Post in a few weeks.
I don't plan to have these by the time they are showing noticeably. I got these two in a mixed batch and am looking to send them on down the road.
