    Is it possible to have a RIR rooster that is 5 1/2 months old and not be able to tell its a rooster? I was supposed to have two roosters and 32 hens but none are appearing to be a rooster. My polish are only 12 weeks old and the two roosters are crowing like crazy. The RIR's are 23 weeks old and none of them crow, none of them walk tall and strut, they pretty much all look the same.

    At 5 1/2 months you should be able to tell a roo...if you are one short, I have a BEAUTIFULL RIR Roo....needs a good home, with lots of ladies. He is DARK red...and full of it! LOL We call him Burbon Red. I would love to find him a home...and not in the pot....

    I wish I was closer to you! I really do need a RIR rooster. Maybe someone in Virginia has one...guess I'll have to start looking.
