I received two chicks without knowing what type they are. I have been told by some they are RIRs. I am trying to figure out the sex of both as well. Help! They are 4 weeks.

Rhode island reds do not have white wings when younger. They look more like a mix. The comb color makes me thing rooster, but it's young. Update in another 2-4 weeks.

i have three 8 week RIR pullets your chickies feather color is quite different to mine. Mine are a rusted red color and have been since they first started getting their feathers. I’m not sure about them being RIR. Also the comb on yours are about the same size as mine and mine are twice their age so they might be cockerels.
