    How can you tell if you have a rooster? I have either RIR or NHR.

    How old are they?
    I use several methods and I usually am right 75-80% of the time.

    Pics would help.

    With RIR/NR... roos will develop a bigger, redder comb quicker.

    I think that is a NHR.. and I am guessing pullet.

    I don't see saddle feathers, instead, they look round by the tail.

    looks like a roo to me! Look at the color and size of the comb and the thickness of the legs! My RIR roo's that are 9 weeks old look the same. The pullet has hardly no comb, and very little color to it. and no tail feathers.
