    I thought that I had it figured out that we had one hen and 3 roo RIR's. But then I now think the one I thought was a hen is a different breed or cross. She is much darker and has a different comb than the others. So now maybe out of the others only one is a Roo. One has leg feathers and a higher tail carriage. They are 13 weeks old and almost as big as our big RIR hen.

    Awesome! Thanks for the help.

    I thought at first that was the case then I just wasnt sure with one of them having feathers on his legs.

    We are fairly new to chickens so I get so confused lol.
