My Gyspy Rose is a RIR. Since she has had a red comb and wattles since 5 weeks, I strongly think she is a he. Perhaps I'm wrong and she is maturing early. Gyspy is 8-9 weeks now and around her beak is red also and her comb is 100% dark red. I am keeping Gyspy until the day she/he crows. I want to make sure first before rehoming. She is the leader of the flock and makes sure everyone behaves. Gyspy has challenged me 3-4 times now when I had my back turned. I've been pecked hard once and stomped/pushed over the other times with both feet. If I keep face forward at all times, she is sweet as can be. Gyspy loves to be held and talks to me in her quiet voice. I am still holding on to hope that my RIR is a girl, but I think I'm in partial denial. When do RIR typically crow? Thanks. Oh, this is my 17 year old daughters bird. It's getting too late to replace Gyspy with another.
