    #3 10 weeks. Has always been strutty. Slowest to feather. Brown on wings. However browning has gotten lighter. Also has the smallest and palest comb of all the EEs

    #4: 10 weeks, Browning on wing. Snapped this shot of some chest bumping. Keep in mind the RSL is 2 weeks younger. A little greenish sheen to tail. Browning is coming is on back and tail you can seen a pattern. Very feathery compared to #3. Also has a small pale comb

    3 and 4 have me perplexed. Mostly #3 if the comb wasn't so small I would say rooster for sure. Infact that is the name of the chicken, Rooster.

    No crowing or pin feathers but I read that that should be happening soon, if any are cockerels. Would love any guesses and I will post new pics in a couple weeks.

    Thanks for reading!
