    So can I assume from the comb and wattle that I have one pullet and one cockerel for these 8 week old Rhode Island Reds or is it still too early to really tell? The one with the larger comb likes to sleep and dust bath like a pullet while the one that I would think is a pullet has no interest in these things.

    I am keeping the pullet since I love her but the rooster is going to my sister. It's gonna be very hard to separate the two, they freak out without each other.

    Yep, I agree, a HE and a SHE. The roos get a very prominent comb pretty fast. Nice birds.
