9 week old OEGB....I know the comb is big, but wondering about the feathering.
Kinda looks like a boy to me, he/she is really pretty though!!
You can not expect from 9 weeks babie to have sikles and sadles but the comb indicates boy at this age.
Yep I would have to say roo here the sickle and hackle feathering will come through later but the deciding factor is the large deep red comb only hens that are about to come into lay will develop such a red comb and at 9 weeks this is doubtful!
So at what age will we see those? I know the comb says boy, but we have one same age that we are sure is a boy.
He has a larger, redder comb, and is he has a larger body than this one. Also has a very different personality. And we have seem him
trying to crow. None of that yet from this one. At what age do the hen and roo really begin to look significantly different?
