    :welcome

    If you bought them as pullets from a feed store or hatchery they are likely pullets.

    I do see one with a larger rose looking comb with pink wattles though...might be a rooster

    I'd need a clearer pic of the RLBW. The second one with the big rose comb looks like a cockerel to me..

    When I get home I will definitely take them outside and get better lighting for you.

    It is hard to tell if you don't have another of the same breed to compare them to at this age. My best guess is the rose comb may be a cockerel as it is showing some pink. I also look at behavior. Cockerels tend to be more aggressive. Again, that is hard to tell with only 3. I'm afraid you'll have to wait a bit longer to know for sure.

    Sounds like a bummer. I assume you can't keep a rooster.
