    This is one of my RIR's at 6 weeks old and I'm thinking Rooster. It has been showing some other rooster signs such as calling to the chicks in the evening to come in, being first to greet me and/or eat out of my hand and showing overall protective instincts. Sorry not the best picture but constant movement doesn't always mean getting the best picture. Below I have a pic of a couple more that I got at the same time for comparison.

    He looks like a cockerel, the comb is big and is well developing, it's also getting redder.

    Thank you guys. I didn't want another Rooster seeing as how I already have two, but this group is in a separate pen and he's becoming my buddy so I guess we've got ourselves another noise maker. I just love my Roosters though. Fortunately all my Roosters have been very friendly and just love being my little buddies.

    Anytime. [​IMG]Hopefully he'll be a nice one, after about 2 years you know they won't be aggressive.
