    The chick in my avatar is my favorite of the RIR girls. They will be five weeks on monday. I was watching him/her today and got to thinking she could be a he. Anyone have a guess.

    This is exactly the same case as mine..... literally, mine will be 5 weeks on monday too! And 3 of my 5 RIR's look like that... Its too bad, because the nicest one is the most developed..... and when they start to crow they are into the pot, so he will probably one of the first to crow..... DARN IT!!! [​IMG]

    Thanks so much. I figured. I really watched to other eight today and I think I have two other roos in the group. So much for 90% sexing accuracy. Thats 3 out of 9 if I'm right.
