    EE roos can be slow developers when it comes to the comb and wattles.

    Judging by the hackle and saddle feathers, and leg thickness, I think you have a cockeral. (under 1 year it's a cockeral)

    A VERY nice looking one, too! [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. Here is another pic. What about the coloring? I know I read a lot about sexing by coloring but I can't figure this one out.
