    [​IMG]I have 12 what I thought were chickens, and two roosters. Then out of the blue one of my EE's started making rooster noises. She is small, thinner and has a larger comb than the other EE's but there's nothing fancy about her. She looks just like a hen??? Tell me what you think.

    Sorry, that looks like a roo to me. Your "female" has a larger comb and fluffier tail feathers than my hens do.

    Yeah, those EE's can fool ya. That's a Rooster not a hen. BTW, They are all "chickens" Hens are females, Roosters are the males. You probably already know that though. LOL! probably just a typo [​IMG]

    Sorry, but I also think that "she" is a cockerel.
