    This one has me stumped. [​IMG]
    It's about 2 months old.
    All my other EE girls already have their pretty tails. This one doesn't, but doesn't have a really red comb..

    The comb is actually a lot more pink compared to the other one that I was told was a cockerel on here..
    That's why I'm so confused. [​IMG]


    ETA: It's legs aren't as big as they look in the picture. Looks thicker than they are because of the leg behind it.
    I'll go get a picture of it's legs really quick.

    It's a roo. Super easy to tell. Dark feathering and red comb at this age is roo. I have raised hundreds and these are always roos.

    That comb is screamin' roo. [​IMG]
    Do you see the three ridges side by side. Girls have one ridge or none. Boys have three.

    Quote:So does that mean the cockerel that I have that has light feathers isn't a cockerel?

    Nope, you can have light colored roos, too. I have white/gold ones, too. And some girls will be dark but at 2 months but you won't see a comb on them like that. The combs are almost flat and flesh colored.

    I'm uploading the picture of it's legs to photobucket right now.
    Then I've got another chicken that I'll start a new thread on.
    It's an EE too, but not bearded. Supposed to be a pullet, but has the three ridges.
    So now I don't know about it..
