    Hmm we are about 11 weeks now and all the sudden my red lady seems a bit boyish.

    Its kinda hard to tell for me but sometimes hens start to get combs like that and its not that unusual. I would say hen cuz the comb isnt red, can you post a pic of the tail please? That should help a but

    Does she have black feet? That weird! I have a 7-8 week old production red which is similiar to an RIR and I think it is a roo. Here is a pic.

    Since yours is 11 weeks and it doesnt have as red of a comb, I would say you've got a pullet. [​IMG]

    I'd have to say pullet. My roo's started showing early on.
