    Does this look like a roo to you? The comb is a little redder than I would like, but it is a rhode island red so maybe that's ok. I got it from my pet chicken and it was supposed to be a pullet. I hope this isn't the 10% they give themselves to missex.

    thanks for the reply. that's not the answer I was hoping for. I'll have to keep watching to see what happens.

    I posted better pics. Although no one has said it's a pullet so it's not looking good for the home team.

    Please note the pic above this post is an example of a RR roo but is not the pic of my RR. My pics are in the first post.

    I have 7 week old RIRs, and their combs are nothing like that size or color...
