Background. Out of 6 RiR chicks, 2 started crowing, and they have been sold. Now I have 4 left. For the most part they look the same (mostly with two major differences mentioned in each of the two birds below). Now, the rest of my 'roosters' are not crowing. Both these birds are 12 weeks old. "Rooster 1" Now the 2nd. Notice that his 'face' isn't as red as "Rooster 1". "Rooster 2" THE BIG question, is there anyway these could be pullets at 12 weeks? Again no crowing out of these ones (two others previously sold, crowed at 9 - 10 weeks).
