    Man, these babies are growning big. The one in question seems very "regal". Very friendly, but always "on watch" looking out for the others. I tried getting the best pics I could, but I was just wondering if anyone thought he/she was a boy! They said 90% that they were all girls. Thanks for looking and they are cute!!! Moving to the big girl coop this weekend!!!

    at this age i mostly look for the color differences in combs. I cannot see that in your pics cause the flash seemed to brighten it up too much (or just too much light exposure) I have some mixed breeds that are about 6 weeks old and i can tell very well which is pullet vs roo but it was iffy back at 4 weeks

    Looks like a hen to me, I have 4 RIR they are about 12 weeks old one of mine is a roo, and that looks like my hens. By 4 weeks old mine had a very large red comb, that one looks very small and yellow. [​IMG]
