    I have 3 wk old 11 rhode island reds and 2 more that don't look the same. One for obvious reasons.I was told he was a roo. The dark one I'm not sure about. Would love any feedback.

    I'll get better ones soon. They are a bit feisty right now.
    Thank you for the feedback

    The second one looks a like a buff orpington.
    Did you get them from a feed store?
    I would check up with a new picture at 6 weeks to see if it is a rooster or not.
    Feather sexing is only reliable if that breed of chicken has the trait of fast feathering pullets and slow feathering roos.
    Some breeds are reversed.
    Buff orpingtons can be feather sexed but we will see what gender it will come out to be in a few weeks.
    Also
    Yes they can be feisty
    Mine was a porker and quite a charecter.
