    My Randal/Rhonda is 6 weeks now, he was supposed to be a BO [​IMG] I have nothing to compare him too. Thoughts on sex/breed now that he's a bit older? Also, he started "crowing" at 5 weeks, will pullets do this too?! It's not a cocka doodle do but more like a yell and stretches out his neck. No one else does this even though I know one of the BOs I have is definitely a rooster! And as far as behavior, will pullets chest bump each other or is that just a roo thing? Sorry for all the questions I'm a newbie and learning so much from this site! Thank you!

    Randal is an EE cockerel. that much comb at this age means male, as does the crowing.

    3 red stars, 2 buff orpingtons, and a white leghorn. Am I right?
