    Can you tell how many of these 4 RIRs are cockerels? I have no experience but 3 look male to me. Am I right?

    I think I agree with you... Definitely 2, but very possibly 3.. I couldn't quite tell. Could you get pictures of each of them with out the wire in the way? Just to be sure?

    Quote:x2 look to be less than 12 weeks? I'd guess 3 out of 4, if I'm seeing the different birds correctly.

    They're still quite young. Between 5 and 6 weeks. I know RIRs hens can have larger combs but I think by comparison there are clearly 3 cockerels here

    2 or 3 cocks, I think

    One of them really stands out, having a clearly larger and redder comb...

    I actually think there are only 2, even 1 rooster, only one has a bright red comb, another has one of the same large size it is not very bright in color.
