    We bought nine RIR's today they were stuffed in a small pen we were told that all were hens. Before I bought them I thought one looked like a roo but that was ok. Now since I have gotten home a stared at them WAY too long I think more are roos. Someone please ease my stress a little by letting me know what you think. Thanks.



    OK I think this one is a hen.

    Your guesses look right to me, but I'm not certain they're only 6 weeks. It's tough to tell by the pics. I would say the ones with the redder, bigger combs are your boys.

    I thought too that they may be older then that but being new at this I was't sure. They are all completly feathered out and flying WELL.

    My money says one rooster, the rest look to be hens. Not a bad mix.

    They look older than six weeks. In the group shots I only see one roo in each one. If that is the same one then you have one boy. But if it isn not the same as the other roo at the end then you probably have two.

    Quote:I agree they look older - I'd say 10-12 weeks at the youngest.

    Really? The guy I bought them from acted really weird, I bought them at a flea market and what I bought was all he had. Oh well if they are older I guess that is good. But everyone does think they look like RIR's cause I haven't ever had any of those or seen any.
