    These guys were vent sexed and was told the RIR was a pullet and the white one a cockeral. Then later was told the RIR looked very rooish, then pullet - soooo now they are 10 weeks old. Everyone still think RIR is pullet and white one is a roo? I just wonder because of the combs and wattles, but then the white one has skinny blue legs. And if anyone wants to take a stab at what breed the white one is I'd sure let them. I'm still thinking polish X of some kind. His earlobes are irredecant (sp) white. They kind of shimmer with the blue of his legs. He also has some red and black feathers, sort of a "V" comb, and a partial crest.

    10 weeks old looks like you have yourself a pair of Roos.

    The white one is for sure a boy, the red... I'm not positive on. The first picture it looks like a girl, in the second picture it looks like a boy. [​IMG]

    Yeah, they're both roos. My RIRs are the same age and nowhere near the comb and wattles of yours. [​IMG]

    I think the rir is a pullet. The white one could be a cockerel, but I'm not sure.
