    He looks a lot like a he to me. Lots of white and a pink comb at 5 weeks. He's no she.

    That's alot more comb and pinkness than my 2 BR's who are 5-6 weeks old. Although mine do have some pinkness to their combs. I'd guess its a boy.

    sorry to hijack, but I was just going to ask the exact same thing of my RIR. It's the middle one. Got them all from a pet store. Do I take him back and exchange for a pullet? They said they were all pullets!

    Yes, they are all the same age. I got them the week before Easter. I think they were about a week old then.
