    I have two RIR 12 weeks old. One is slightly larger and they are both camera shy. It's so hard to get a decent picture. So here are my best shots.
    One on the left and one on the right. And they are?? Male or female.

    Try to get a good shot of the tail area. If cockerels they will have saddle feathers that are pointed on the ends. If pullets the feathers will be rounded.

    Thank you all for you wisdom. I'm so happy they are both pullets. I wouldn't want to have to get rid of any of my birds. I don't want any roasters. They cops would be at my door in a minute.
