    I have some, but not on this computer. I can post them tomorrow. You can kinda see one in the last pic on my BYC page. I will upload a few for you tomorrow. Can you upload a pic of yours. Someone may be able to tell you the sex off one of your pics. Just make sure you get a good shot of the comb and waddles.

    Quote:Absolutely, I actually am going to go and grab my charger in the car. I'll do it in a bit. Thanks for the reminder. Chicken wrangling was a bit of a chore tonight!

    Quote:That is hysterical! I'm thinking I got duped into some roo's. I'm in the city and just can't do it. Hopefully we'll figure out what they are. Come back in a bit after I post some pic's. Thanks for all the help.

    Here are a few pics of my RIRs. I was told they were pullets when we purchased them. They were a month old (at least) on Easter. The following pics were taken the following weekend. We were making a few improvements to the coop and they were enjoying the warm weather and sun.

    None of them has developed a pink or red comb. And their waddles are still small and flesh colored. I hope that helps.

    I'm pretty sure they're all pullets. [​IMG] The RIR get bigger and redder before a lot of my other birds. In fact, when I got my first set of birds this year, I got what I *thought* was a RIR cockeral, but she was just a week older than the other obvious pullets! We thought she was a roo for several weeks! Her name is Rudy, shortened from Rupert. She knows her name, so we can't change it! LOL! We have a dog named Ruby, so that was out of the question. [​IMG]

    My RIR is really sweet. You'll enjoy them!

    Quote:Yeah, that is what we were told! [​IMG] I am hoping that my pics help emilyweck. I don't have close-ups of their faces though. I also have 3 Golden Comets that have not fully feathered out yet and I was told they were girls too. Now I only wish I had a RIR roo of the same age! [​IMG]
