    I'll be in the barn!
    yeah! Thanks in advance!


    I don't know the breed that well, but just a guess would be pullets.

    hi everyone. I'm wondering if this BR might be a cockerel. he's about 4 weeks old. I'm wondering because he is about the same size as the rest of my flock but dosent have as many feathers and he has a comb which some of the others still don't have. thanks![​IMG]

    So, I'm coming to grips with the fact that I have two absolutely gorgeous, albeit unplanned, RIR roosters. Now, I'm wondering if I have another one :-/ What do you think? This one is just shy of 3 months old. Also, do you mind explaining what exactly you're looking at to determine sex, please? I believe it's combs and waddles (not sure if I spelled that correctly). Thank You!!!

    Assuming the bird above is a cockerel due to comb growth. If that is true, then also assuming the bird below (same breed) is a pullet (not the best photo quality). Both are 6 week old

    That is not a Rhode Island Red. That is a Red Sexlink. And it's a pullet.

    Yes, this one is a Red Sexlink. Sorry I didn't make that more clear. I have two RIR roosters and wasn't sure if this one was pullet or rooster (thinking I had another rooster). Gotta say, you made my day :) Thank You!!!!

    Looks pretty dark to be a cockerel - sometimes that happens, but until any other evidence arises - I'd say pullet.

    A little early, but I'd go with pullet.
    Red sex link pullet.
    One cockerel, one pullet.
