    At 7 weeks old, I do realize they may still be too young to sex, but it's worth a shot. So what do you all think? The other 5's combs are smaller and still very yellow.

    Potentially, but it's not screaming cockerel. RIRs tend to mature young and show pretty large combs and wattles quite early; even hens tend to develop pretty large and red ones at young ages. I'd expect a 7 week cockerel to be showing a very large comb and wattle, bigger than what I'm seeing here. If you could post updated photos in 3-5 weeks, gender should be quite obvious by then.

    Awesome! I'll definitely be keeping my eye on that one. Personally I wouldn't be too bummed but I know my husband wouldn't be too thrilled with a roo.
