    Here are 2 of 3 RIR chicks that my Frizzle hen hatched out. Pullet or roo.

    2 look like the first one and 1 looks like the last.

    Opps.....3 weeks yesterday. There are 2 with tails and darker wings and 1 with tail feathers just starting and lighter tips to the wings. I did that feather sexing on hatch day and I guessed 2 pullets and 1 roo. Now I am not sure I do not have it backwards. These are for my uncle and I so was hoping for the pullets and a roo.

    Also there is no color in any of the combs.

    Its hard to tell with RIR some times. The hens have a habbit of taking on a very rooster like roll a lot. And the Hens tend to get a large comb like roosters at the early ages. So its really hard to tell. I thought my hen was a rooster for the longest. And that's coming from me - someone who has had chickens all her life.
