    This is my Rhode Island Red Ruby, though the older she gets the more I think she is actually a he. What do you think? 13 weeks old.

    This is your money shot. There are clearly visible male saddle feathers starting to emerge. Although, I'm guessing that comb has been pretty red for a while now. A pullet at 13 weeks would just be starting to pink up.
