    It's way too early to tell just yet. Re-post around 8-12 weeks and we can better help you then...

    I'm not sure if it's my computer or what, but I cannot see the photos.

    I can tell you that 2 weeks old is too young to sex anything except the auto-sexing and sex-linked birds--which RIRs aren't. May I suggest you repost photos in another 2-4 weeks? I have two RIR hens, and never doubted they were female except when the bossy one "crowed" once a few weeks before she started laying. The hens are awesome layers and easy keepers. I have heard that RIR roos are rather aggressive.
