    Hi there
    This is my 10 week old RIR, I have been under the impression that she is a she but now I'm doubting. Sweet thing, no crowing or fighting, and definately not the dominant bird. Please say she's a pullet, or my kids are going to be so sad...

    I'll try to figure out how to put the picture on correctly.
    Thanks!

    That's a pretty significant comb and wattles for 10wks. I have a 17wk old RIR who doesn't have a comb that big.

    Edited to add a pic of my (at the time) 15wk old RIR pullet:

    Cockerel is my guess too...
    Not all roos are jerks...My Jerry was sweet.

    That's what I was worried about. We're in Seattle so no roos are allowed. I hear they start to crow around 16 weeks? Anyone in the King County area need a lovely boy RIR? No way he could be just a...I don't know...well endowed pullet?
    Thanks

    It certainly looks like a roo to me.
