    Hi -

    I have two 10-week old RIRs. See attached. One is significantly larger than the other, has large comb, ... Is s/he a rooster?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    This last pic is the smaller one in front of the larger one (that might be the rooster).

    10 weeks worth a bright red comb is definitely a roo

    The bird in the foreground of the top two pics and in the background of the third pic is definitely a cockerel. :eek:(

    Definitely a roo. But I think the one in the front in the last picture is a hen.
