    I got these babies from our local feed store all sexed as pullets and I do believe I have all cockerels. I was hoping maybe one would be a cockerel but, dang, not all of them [​IMG]. So what is everyone else's opinion RIR is 8-9 weeks and EE's are 4-5 weeks.

    No one is screaming cockerel at this point. What is it you are seeing that is causing you concern about their gender?

    Initially only one photo of a red was showing - I do see another (the first) photo now -- so they are two different reds, correct? Can you get a photo of the first bird that is shot at an angle like that of the second?

    I suppose I will know for sure what they are if they crow.

    I think 1 and 2 are roosters.

    I think they're all pullets. I have 5 x RIRs that are 10wks old.
