    Here are some pics of my 11 week old RIR's, a lady wants to buy my spare pullets and before I sell them I want to be sure that she will be getting pullets, all three look mostly the same give or take a bit of white speckling or green colour on their feather tips so I have no obvious rooster like ones to compare with of this breed, so I hope someone with cockerels or pullets the same age out there can help me please.[​IMG]

    That there is a RSL or a Production Red.

    I don't think the OP's birds are RIR either to be honest.. Either way, both are roosters and you do have a pullet :)
