    I bought this frizzle which I'm assuming is a bantam cochin frizzle and I'm pretty positive its a roo. Will this breed have a good temperament as a roo? I have no roosters right now.[​IMG]

    At that age, not definite, but, yes, it looks to be a rooster.

    Easter Egger cockerels tend to have 3 row pea combs, this is not always accurate but it works most of the time. If you want to post a picture though we would love to help!

    Ok i was told all the ee were pullets but we know how that goes. Top one has little to no tail feathers and has more white which has me questioning

    This one seems average just like the all white one. Im pretty sure these 2 are both pullets
