Can someone tell me how to sex my 3 wk old RIR?
The boys have thicker legs and faster growing combs. Also tend to be pink/reddish in their combs younger.
We have two RIR chicks that came from the same hatchery batch on 4/4. Though they are almost the same size, one has more distinct markings is far advance of the other in featheringthat the other (and all the rest of our chicks too). She even has a few tail feathers. No comb yet but I am suspecting the more feathered hen is NOT a hen at all... Any thoughts? ....My husband is thinking BBQ...
So far for me females feather out faster than the roos do.
You know you have a roo if you start to see any sign of red over the beak or under.
And another sure sign is waiting for it to crow for the first time
