    I like to give these 'games' a try... I'm guessing pullet but I don't have tons of experience in this area.

    I have tosay pullet beause I read somewhere that their legs are larger if they are a roo. I have two RIR's the same age and they look just like mine. I think I have 1 BO roo because of size, leg size, comb size and temperment. Does that make me an expert? Heck no!

    It looks like a Red Star to me, but not sure if it.s a pullet or roo. I have RIR's they looked darker than yours. They were almost 6 weeks here.

    She looks just like my RIR pullets. She'll get darker with age.

    I would say pullet. My little RIR obvious roo is about the same age and there is a big difference! Yours looks like my pullet chicks all the same age as yours.
    You sure have a cutie there!

    These chicks, same age as yours, are pullets. They're golden comets (RIR red x RIR white). Maybe this will help you decide! [​IMG]

    I say pullet also. I think she would have a larger and redder comb if a boy.
