I have 4 RIRs that are that same age. I can CLEARLY tell one is a boy. The comb is much redder and taller than the others which are girls. It's hackles are even redder. Can you take a pic comparing it to one of the others?

Ummm that looks like a fella to me! You could easily pick him out of the second and third pic. Can you keep roosters?

lol. whoever said this is a rooster would be correct.


here is a pic of him now at 7 and 8 weeks old




he is always the first one at the door once we open it. he is actually very friendly though so far. he has never tried to peck me or my dad and he never "chases" us

he is also very courious and loved his first time outside the other day. my dad named him Rusty the Rooster
