    As far as we know, they are the same age. Bought at the same time from a local breeder. They look SO different, we believe we have one of each! So please tell me...is it true? Do we have a future Hen, and maybe a Roo?! received_202186967220330.jpeg received_202186980553662 (2).jpeg received_202187010553659.jpeg received_202187047220322.jpeg

    It's not possible to tell at this age in a bit couple weeks you'll know for sure you got a 50/50 chance for hen and roo

    Too young to sex but their coloring does not look like RIR. The 2 in the box are RIR, the 2 on the potty pad are Wyandottes.

  4. Don’t look like wyandottes - wrong combs, colour and pattern

    way too young to tell... Give them until 8wks or so and then we can help you out.

    Much to young to say for sure yet. I highly doubt they are Rhode Island Reds either. Color is way off.

    Please wait until they are 6 weeks old. Then we will have a better idea on breed, (doesn't look RIR) and will be able to tell gender.
