    Pullet. Here is a picture of my RIR Roo at about 8 weeks old.

    I'm going to say pullet, but her legs do look thick. Could be a slow developing male [​IMG]

    Pullet. My three week old RIR is an obvious Roo...has the same markings and is 7 weeks younger.

    Pullet. I've got some NHR crosses, and the roos have MUCH larger combs.

    Thanks! She [​IMG] has a lot more development as my other 10 week RIR. I only started wondering because I heard what sounded like a chicken trying to crow. It was coming from this chicken. I've heard it 3 times since yesterday.
