    I have 3 RIR's...this one is bigger than the other two, more vocal (no crowing, yet) and has a more developed comb and chin. Could "she" be a "he"?

    How old is your RIR? I'm no expert and am not even certain that all of mine are girls yet, but I think your chicken looks like a pullet who is about ready to lay. Her body type and posture look pretty girly to me.
