    I know the brown leghorn is a rooster but is this rhode island red female?
    all of my rhode island reds have very small tannish combs

    The bird in the foreground looks like a pullet. No comb or wattle development. However, she is a production red. She's very light and rusty. She'll be a great layer, no doubt, if she's a female.

    They are Production Reds, not RIR. Pullets as well [​IMG]

    ok thank you very much! I was just worried because I got 10 of them and 10 brown leghorns at the same time that were all supposed to be pullets and 5 of the brown leghorns ended up being roosters
