    I'm beginning to think that my 14 week RIR is a rooster. S'he' was always the smallest and in the last several weeks has just gotten HUGE, way bigger than the other birds. Legs are thicker, comb and wattle more developed etc.... What do you all think? [​IMG]

    I agree! I think I see saddle feathers near the base of the tail.

    Roo. If you look where the tail and the body meet, you can see shiny skinny saddle feathers. Only boys have those.
