    I bought her as a rhode island red pullet, but her tail feather are starting to worry me if she is a pullet or roo.

    She is 13 weeks old.

    An off note, the other chicken in the last photo is 14 week and the black parts of her feather are shiny-greenish, does that mean anything.

    Thanks, worried first-time chicken momma.

    The one in the back looks like what I was told my RIR are but I am not 100% sure if they are RIR or NH.

    That is deffinitly a HEN [​IMG] The tail feathers are that of a hen and there is no red comb. I have one that is only 7 weeks old and it has a large red comb already and [​IMG] it's a roo.
