    thanks. i am new to this and figured it would be easy for you guys to tell. he/she is def. a little more dominant and protective of the other two. the other rir i have comb is almost the same size but yellow and black, so i started wondering about this one. thanks again

    One of my RiR hen had a hug comb and nice and pink at that age; however yours has waddles coming up already....so I say it's looking boy'ish. I tired looking for a pic, but am at work sorry. You can look at my post and I'm sure you'll find her....
