    Here is my RI Red girl. How old do you think she is? I bought her as a pullet?

    No idea without a fully body shot... I think between 4 and 10 weeks?

    The neck feathers look far too shiny and glossy to me to be a hen.

    Usually they also don't develope much in terms or red comb or wattles until just before they start to lay.

    Could we get a full body shot?

    From what I am seeing you have a roo that is around the 8 week mark age wise.
