    So I have two olive eggers I am stumped at... Someone is interested in buying my Roos so I want to make sure I am getting them correct... Both have decent red combs but tiny wattles and not sure of saddle or hackles yet.

    I m pretty sure that the first and last pictures are roos, but the others are too blurry to tell. [​IMG]

    Could you get better pictures? The top one is a cockerel, but there is a slight chance of them bottom one being a pullet (due to its small comb and I don't see saddle feathers/sickle feathers).

    I will see if i can get better pics... are you basing the top bird ( 3 pics and yes they are blurry) on the comb alone? Just trying to understand all the whys?
    yes the bottom one does not have any hackle or sickle feathers yet and it has a red comb but not huge or bright... Not seeing obvious feathers on either bird which is why I am stumped.

    The top ones comb is HUGE also I can sort of make our rooster looking feathers but I'm not positive since it is so blurry.
