    Looks like a pullet, but RIRs take a LONG time to differentiate.

    I agree...pullet. My RIRs (which were sent as packing peanuts) had red/pinkish combs by 4 wks...yours looks pretty yellow. Good sign (if you want a pullet) [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! Sounds pretty unanimous. PULLET! Either way was fine with me. I already had someone to give it to if it was a roo.
