    [​IMG]I was given this as a baby chic. I believe it is 2 months old (see pictures). I'm hoping it's a pullet and possibly a RIR. Any thoughts would be helpful.

    I'm guessing roo too but you'll need to post some pics of the bird's side and tail.

    Thank you all for your posts. I'll get a side and tail picture just in case it helps. But, it looks unanimous about being a Roo and not a RIR.
    I will have to find a home for him as I am not allowed to keep a Roo. He likes to be held close and talked to softly (although he fights a bit at first to be picked up). If anyone knows of a place where I could find him a good home where he can live a nice life, I would be happy. I'm in San Diego County. [​IMG]

    Thanks, Robin's Brood, for the welcome! I noticed you have been in the coop (BYC) for about a year and a half. How fun it is and helpful you are. [​IMG] Please look for side and tail pics maybe tomorrow. Thanks again!

    He's a rooster and most likely a production red.
