    Hi, this pretty little thing was in a straight run of Rhode Island Reds at Rural King. We got "her" along with a batch of straight runs and another one from the same run that I believe is a roo, because of tail feathers. There were several in the pullets of RIRs with some white, but not as much as this one.

    Roo???

    Do you think she is a red sex linked or a mix or a true RIR? Are the longer tail feathers a rooster trait? The sexed pullet had no tail yet....? Will have fun watching them grow regardless! Thanks!

    You mean the one to the right of the one with white in the upper right photo of the collage? Might take a few....and that is the pullet, so a girl. :)
