    Looks like you have 1 RIR rooster (on the left in the bottom pic) and 1 RIR pullet, but with the lighting it's hard to see how red the combs are. BR is suspicious.

    What makes you say rooster to the RIR? Why is the BR on the fence? I need help. Other wise I may end up with one chicken. Which she will get lonely. [​IMG]

    Did you get these from a feed store, hatchery, or other? Did they come sexed?

    The RIR on the left has a red and prominent comb. Pullets typically have pale combs until they get close to laying age.

    The BR also has a redder comb than I would expect to see on a pullet. However, it has the slate going down the front of the legs and the blurred barring typical of females. I can see it going either way. Could you post another picture of the face? A picture showing all three combs would also be good for comparison. It's been a while since I had juvenile BRs.

    They look to be around 8 weeks old? They're all pullets.

    They are about 8 weeks old. We're told day old chicks and picked up 3/31. I'm posting photos now. Hard to get all three in a photo looking. [​IMG]
