    I posted pics of my rir a few weeks ago and several people here sat on the fence. So at 16 weeks old there is no crowing or dominant behavior. So any ideas here ? [​IMG]

    For sure a rooster, may be a slow grower though.

    Nope, some RiR strains are slower developers. Just be wary many hatchery RiR boys are know to develop a mean streak.

    That's a cockerel. No problem keeping him with hens at all, unless he has behavioral issues and needs to live somewhere else.
