    Pretty new to chickens. These are RIRs I purchased on March 4, 2017 from TSC. I was told they were approximately 1-2 weeks old. I'm guessing it's too soon to tell if they are roos or not, but I couldn't help showing them off anyway!

    They're adorable! I see why you want to show them off, lol.

    Please post pictures when they are at least 6-8 weeks old. :)

    They're too young to sex. I would post new photos of them when they're around 6-8 weeks old.

    I think you should post pictures at 6 to 8 weeks of age :) :) :) I'm sorry I just couldn't resist. But thank you for posting this anyway because now I have the answer to my question. I needed to know at what age you can tell the gender. I have a feeling it's somewhere around 6 to 8 weeks :)
