    Was it on here that I read that sometimes you can tell pullets from cockerels on the RIRs somehow? Somewhere I've read something about some having like a darker stripe on their head or something or some being lighter colored red and some being darker? It may have not been on here...but I remember reading something about it somewhere on the net.
