    I have 3 RIR and 3 BR. At what age might I expect to begin seeing signs of a Roo? They will be 4 weeks next Tuesday the 1st of June. When will the combs on Roos begin to emerge? I have seen pix on here of certain breeds that people say are around 4 weeks, and the combs are quite visible and red. Anyone with RIRs or BRs that can provide me with some feedback?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    If not already soon, very soon.

    Can you post pictures of your birds? We could help you out. Not every rooster is as obvious as those that get bright red combs right off the bat, but there are generally signs nonetheless.

    They are down for the night right now. I will post some at 4 weeks and we can see then. I am only suspect of 1 or 2...
