    If that's the picture of your RIR, then you definitely have pullets! Here's a pic of my RIR roo at just 6 wks. [​IMG] He is now almost 10 wks. old and has a HUGE comb and wattles!

    Well that would be fantastic! Do hens peck at roosters?

    They can! Sometimes I see my hens with their hackle feathers raised going after my roo! [​IMG] Yours are definitely not roos, so no need to worry any more. [​IMG]

    WELCOME TO BYC, by the way! [​IMG]
