    All three pictures are of different Rhode Island Reds about 4 weeks old.

    I fear all three are roos (the first I am almost certain) but will be more confident to hear from the experts.

    I tried holding the chicks myself and taking the picture which is why they are too close and blurry. If a clearer pic. is needed I'll do it again later when I have help.

    Based on ratio of pink to non pink, I see three boys.

    Oh Man!!! I was hoping to get one hen out that group of RIRs. Oh well. I know for sure I have 6 hens. I'll keep one of those roosters and give the other two away. I'll just wait to see what kind of disposition they each have as they grow older.

    Thanks for the feedback.
