    I have 19 chicks now in my brooder boxes. 5 of the Rhode Islands are head an shoulders taller than the other chicks. All same age. I know this doesn't mean for 100% they are males but does anyone have a clue by the pics I will post below? Thanks all!! Raising these babies has been exciting so far.
