    I am new to raising chickens. He/She is 10 weeks old, as a chick it was a little but not much compared to the other RIR. If it helps it had chipmunk stripes when a chick.

    I am going to guess girl. My RIR pullet is only 9 weeks and her comb is still small and yellow, but I have seen pics of RIR roos at the same age and their combs are bigger than your chick's.

    Thanks for your input. I just wasn't positive because she is bigger than the other RIR's and an attitude to match.

    She looks just like my RIR. I'm pretty sure I have a hen too.
