    Pics in #5

    Hey! Can anyone post a pic of their RIRs at 5 weeks? All mine (3) have pretty large combs. Last week I found a Partridge Rocks roo in the mix- fine I will have 15 hens and 3 roos- but my RIRs all have really large combs- and I wanted to make sure this is not a sign of a ROO.... That would be bad news! Considering I had order these all as pullets so I had more eggs! lol....

    Their is no system to the madness of photos- They girls were trying to help me and that lead to a bunch of pictures that I can't label- just more or less a general feeling of if these are all roos or if I got any pullets in the bunch!

    They are 4 weeks 5 days.

    Here are my pullets at 5 weeks. The size of the combs varies a lot. They are all now almost 15 weeks and a couple of them look like they are ready to lay eggs any day now. The others still have really small, pale combs and tiny waddles.
