    My "gals" are supposed to be around 5 weeks old and I have researched for hours about possible genders, I'm lost at what they could be. We can't have roo's so I would like to replace them with pullets ASAP. I have a feeling our straight run days are over! These are 7 RIR and 2 Barred Rocks, I think. Thank you so much!

    I think you have one cockerel and one pullet BR. The one has much heavier legs and a bigger comb--so I think that's a "he."

    I'm going to hold off on guessing with the RIRs.

    I see a lot of combs all over the place! It's kinda early to tell, but you could try individual full body shots, including legs, and we can work on each one.
