developing rooish traits *UPDATE WITH PICS*

  1. my 4 1/2 week old RIR is developing rooish traits [​IMG]
    "Her" Tail feathers are kind of pointy like a roo and she now trys to peck me if i have my hand near her; my deceased Sumatra roo did that.

    however, what confuses me is that i did research last week and i saw a RIR cockerel at 4 weeks old and its comb was much bigger thanmy RIR.

    i'll post some pics if required

    Pictures will help! [​IMG] I have noticed that sometimes my pullets will go through a more aggressive phase and then calm down. This may be what is happening here. [​IMG]
  3. i think the hackles are growing out a bit too [​IMG]

    sorry the pics aren't too good, she would not stay still much and when she did, it wasn't at a very good angle

    I found out that RIR chicks have a dark strip down their backs and their head.
