    NO COMB ITS FUNNY IT LOOKS LIKE A BALD OLD MAN WITH A HUGE BEARD. ITS FEATHERS ARE SO SOFT AND NOT SURE IF YOU CAN TELL BUT THE LEGS ARE LIKE AN OLIVE COLOR.

    HOW CAN YOU TELL THE SEX?????

    Going by the legs, I'd say it's an EE pullet. But it's comb is pretty wide, but not much red...how many rows of "peas" are in the comb? Is there one ridge or three?

    I'm sure no expert!! [​IMG]

    I'm horrible at sexing EE chicks, but if it turns out to be a boy definitely seperate him. I've had 2 (at different times) before and they fought with my Rhode island Red Rooster like crazy. They're very possessive of the hens and generally don't like other males. I evenually sold mine because my ducks began to set eggs and they would go after her too. Meanest things ever. Yours might be gentle like my RIR was but i've had it with EE Roos! [​IMG]
