    I ordered a RIR pullet along with other chicks but I'm most concerned with my one RIR. It's from Ideal and it is SUPPOSE to be a pullet, but i'm already thinking otherwise. It is the largest by far, weighing about 2.05 oz or more. (Weighed it Sunday) "She" is already getting her, I guess, shoulder feathers? while the others are not. My other Standard breed chicks are a BA, BR, and EE. Could "she" be a roo or is "she" just growing fast? [​IMG]

    I always thought females feathered faster than the males?

    I just had 6 RIR, they all got big fast, and were way bigger than the other chicks I had that were the same age (3 weeks). I only kept one though, so now I have no others to compare her (hopefully) to.

    you dont need a photobucket account. At the top of the page, you see where it says "uploads" ? Click on it. It will give you the option to browse your folders for pics and upload them. It is how I do all of mine....
