    Just needing opinions on this. First of all I'm pretty sure this is a RIR and I think about 15 weeks old. We purchased from local farm supply store and they said all were pullets and my husband assures me it is a pullet but I'm not sure. Not aggressive at all. Thanks for your help!!

    I'll be in the barn!
    got a full body picture? Looks pullet-y to me, but I don't think it's an RIR.

    I can post a full body pic tomorrow. We were told that they were Buff Orphingrons but this one and one other are really dark red and the other two are light colored, I'm beginning to think that they didn't know what they had!!

    It's a cockerel. If the legs are white, he's a buff Orpington. If they are yellow, he's a production red of some sort.

    Got anymore pictures? Honestly, I'm still leaning towards pullet, but I can't see the back.
