    I received 2 chickens the beginning of March and was told they are RIR's and both females. Now 3 months later I'm starting to think one of them, my Molly (now Mol), is a cockerel. I hope the pictures I post are helpful enough to help me. Also I'm thinking they are not RIR's. I bought 2 more from a reputable grain company near home and they are true RIR's. I think Mol and my other hen are WelSummer's. Is this a true bree and can someone help me identify if Mol is for sure a cockerel? please and thank you

    I'm seeing all pullets, and you have Production Reds not RIR.

    thank you to all who answered. i have looked at other pictures and she is Molly. [​IMG]

    do you know if chickens mimick other animals? 2 or 3 of them sound like they are honking or quacking...it's hilarious
