    I have 3 RIRs one is a slight bigger than the others and has a bigger comb than all of them. Another has a regular sized comb but it's more red than the others.and one has a plain comb. I'd like to if possible get some gender input from the details I just gave... They are each 3 weeks old

    3 weeks is simply too soon to tell. At 8 weeks, the cockerels tend to sprout a red comb and little wattles begin to sprout under their beaks. That's the time to begin to tell with any accuracy at all.

    I agree to an extent. Some boys are very obvious at a young age. I had 2 week olds that I knew immediately, but with some I would wait until at least 6 weeks. [​IMG] Like this cockerel I had at 3 weeks. :lol:
