    I would like some feedback on my 12 week old RIR.
    However, I am having trouble getting decent pics of her to post.
    I'd love to know if she's a she or turning into a roo. Does anyone have a good pic of a 12 week RIR they could post.
    I need to see head and tail shots for comparison photos. Meanwhile, I'll see what I can do to get close-ups.
    Thanks for any help!

    I have an RIR roo and he started showing red comb and wattles at 2-3 weeks and then after that it just got more and more apparent!



    this is him around 6-8 weeks, when I first put them outside.

    at around 12 or so weeks.

    6 months, and he's about 8-9 months now!

    Quote:Yep:) He came from the feed store and I'm not even sure what hatchery they come from. He's been a great rooster, and very friendly. I was worried, cause of all the bad rap RIRs have for their meaness!

    mine is a sweet little guy (even though when transfering chickens i can only carry him by himself cuz hes so big) ill pick him up and carry him around and he kicks softly like he is walking and will sometimes hide his face under my arm
