    These RIR are nearly 9 weeks old. I am unsure of the sex. Is there a way to tell this young?[​IMG]

    One cockerel for sure... Judge them by the size of wattles and combs..

    I say the two in back with the larger combs are cockerels.

    At the very least the one looking directly at the camera with the big red comb and wattles is a cockerel. That one for sure. Possibly the one to the left of it, behind the feeder. I can't see its comb too well but it seems to be quite pink.
