    Hi,
    I have a RIR "Pullet", but she is startling to look like a rooster! Her comb and waddle are bigger and redder than the other RIR I have. Here she is. Can anybody tell me what you think she is?[​IMG]

    How old is s/he? The body picture is kinda dark but not seeing male feathering, could she just be getting ready to lay sooner than the other one?

    You have a pullet and should get lots of eggs from her.

    When do you think she will start laying. Because it is really cold where I live and I don't think that she will start to lay till. Warmer months.

    RIRs are cold hardy birds, and I'll think you'll start getting eggs from her soon in spite of the cold weather.
