    I bought these at the local TSC. Supposedly mixed pullets however they were 99% sure that they were all RIR. Here they are at 3-4 weeks. Any suggestions on the gender. Sorry about the poor pics. Note that two have very long white tail feathers and the other four have short dark feathers

    It might be to early to tell if they are boys or girls though.

    Is there a way to get pictures of them close up? The head / comb area and the wings and tail?

    I am new to chickens but they kind of look like they are feathering in like my Red Sex Link chick did. I have a chick that might be a RIR or Production Red and at 2 1/2 weeks it is feathered in much darker than yours, but that might not make any difference really.

    Here was my red sex link at maybe 2 weeks?

    [​IMG]

    But then again here she is at around 4 weeks

    [​IMG]


    And here is a picture of the chick I think is a RIR or Production Red at 2.5 weeks

    I don't know if my pictures will help you any or not. . . I know pictures can sometimes help me . . . . Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!
