    I recently bought 6 chicks. I think one of my rir chicks is a rooster. All the other chicks tail feathers are very noticeable. Even a chick that is younger than it. The ride chicks are about 3 weeks I think. I've read that roosters tail feathers take longer than the hens to grow. He has a couple but no where near as much as the others. [​IMG]
