    Just over 5 weeks old. I'm pretty sure a pullet from the googling I've done but I'm new in the chicken world and want to be sure before I get attached lol[​IMG]

    Looks like a pullet. Males of this type are usually making themselves known around this age.

    Looks female thus far, but some males are late bloomers. Give it a few weeks, keep checking!

    Looks like a pullet right now. But you'll know for sure in a few weeks, as RIR males generally make themselves obvious quickly.
