oh the pointy hackles don't come out till 4-5 months of age?
Yes! They can start at 12 weeks but usually don't fully show until 16 weeks.
ok now this is off subject, but since we all believe my Custard is a roo, if he fertilizes the eggs from my hens, and they hatch, will they be considered EE?
do easter egger hens never get a red comb? because I have read that the red combs are rooster signs. just wondering why the hens don't get the red combs, or if they do, then why is a comb color an indicator? just trying to inform myself so if we need to rehome our probable roo, I can look for an older ee hen!
I have a couple 4 week old EE cockerals getting red in the comb. Pullets usually wait until close to laying to get red.
ok thank you!
I have a few EE mix chicks that I hatched myself and I want your opinions on gender, please.
oops, forgot to add that they are 3 1/2 weeks old.
What do you think?
This post is from about 15 pages back but just wanted to clarify that pullets will get red combs, often with 3 rows of peas, but this usually will not happen until around 20 weeks when they are reaching point of lay. Bernice is beautiful and has a very obvious pullet pattern. How old was she when people were saying she was a he?
They are a bit young, but my guesses match yours. Less sure on the pretty black legged one, though.
