    So I read on a thread that on the RIR chicks if there is a line on the head it's a hen if no line it's a rooster. I'm asking because my order didn't come with the rooster I ordered. I ordered the pullets so u know there is a chance one of them is a rooster. So I knew that one of them is for sure then I will stop trying to find one else where. Here is a pic if the only one I have that doesn't haven a line on its head. Opinions please. [​IMG]

    The lines don't matter. Try vent sexing or wing sexing (doesn't work on bantams). Youtube has videos for you to watch so you can see how it is done and know for sure.
