    This may be premature, but I'm thinking I have a RIR roo and if I do, I'd like to exchange it asap for a hen... thanks!! It seems bossy- could be because it's a week older, and it's stance seems to dominate the group... [​IMG][​IMG]

    Yeah I say hen too, If it were a roo I feel like it would have a more noticable comb. Maybe its just a dominant hen

    Agreed it's probably a pullet. My RIR roo at that age had very obvious little baby rooster comb and wattles, and HUGE feet! There was no mistaking him in the bunch!
