    I'm still unsure of this one. It's somewhere between 6-7.5 weeks old. Around the comb and wattles stated getting pretty pink a couple weeks ago but they haven't got much more reddish and the actual comb itself is still pretty yellow. Thoughts?

    Hmm, it hasn't changed and usually cockerels will just keep getting bigger. I'm not sure anymore, maybe you should keep us updated. I can't wait to figure this one out!
