    Good Morning BYC! Im hoping you guys and you expertise could help me determine the sex and breed of my chickens. I got these three 13 week old chicks from a local feed store as Rhode Island Red Pullets at 6Wks old. Theyre 13 weeks old now and Im growing more concerned with the actual sex and breed of these guys. What do you guys think? [​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    All boys, 3/4 are rir or production reds. The 4th one seems to be a mix, perhaps the oddball red sex link roo with pullet coloring? [​IMG]

    Sorry, I just deleted the 3rd picture as it was a duplicate of the second picture. But you think all 3 are Roos?

    They shouldn't have reddened waddles and combs at 13 weeks. Pullets will start to show reddened waddles and combs 2-4 weeks before they start laying. These 3 are definitely boys. All 3 have pointed hackle feathers and are starting to grow sickle feathers.
