Any thoughts on these EE babies? They are 5 weeks old, but the top two photos have 3 rows of peas. Others only have one row of peas, but are pinker in the comb than I'm comfortable with.
Each photo collage is of ONE bird. The lighting was different for some pics, but they each have their own collage.
Tikka. He/she is turning out to be a chick tyrant. Fights almost everyone and wins. Had a staring contest with mom yesterday and won. The possible mother hens for this baby included orpington, black sex link, so the comb may be a modified pea comb/straight comb. Not pink in comb at all, but the black hackle feathers and occasional black wing/tail feathers have me a bit suspicious. Also a very large chick.
I realize it's all a crap-shoot at 5 weeks, but was hoping someone could put the 2 cockerels to rest in my mind. I would like to rehome them sooner rather than later.
Big Boy is definitely a cockerel for sure. Turkey might be a cockerel, not sure yet. The rest look like pullets for now.
