    Hi guys, sorry for all the posts. I have to re-home some of these guys and I just don't want to tell someone they are pullets if they are really roos. I want to make sure I have their right sex because nothing is worse then when your hen starts "doodle dooing" in a neighborhood that doesn't allow roosters!

    These are my 3 week old Rhode Island Reds shipped to me as pullets - Nitro and Glycerine (they are my party animals!).

    They are sweet and curious. They "party" hard. They are my most energetic chicks ever! What worries me is their energy. Their combs are much smaller than my Leghorn's as well as my sussex, but their attitudes are MUCH bigger.

    Thanks.

    Too hard for me to tell at this age but if it helps my friendliest RIR that I was sure was a roo turned out to be a pullet. So it's not for sure that the friendly ones are 100% roo. [​IMG]
