  2. The pics aren't great. Does it have poofy cheeks? If so, it's marked like an EE and has green legs like an EE, so.......

    Can't see the comb well enough to tell its sex yet.

    I'm seeing gold coming in on the shoulders--which says probably male.

    Markings are similar to campine, as are the slate legs

    Looks like an E.E. It also probabily has at least one relation that is a rumpless Araucana if it has no tail, or maybe it is even pure.

    Good luck with your cute little bugger,
    Jamie

    I'd say EE. can't tell on the sex yet. I have an ee I swore was a pullet and then right at 5 weeks his comb turned bright red overnight.. it wasy crazy!

    I say EE.
    And.. I kinda think it's a roo, its comb stands out more than my 2 month olds does.
    But i'm not totally sure, just my 2 cents [​IMG]
