    This one has me stumped, it barely has a comb, the pullets I got from the feed store have a much redder and more pronounced comb then this one and I can't seem to find and saddle or hackle feathers that are pointy. But the tail screams roo to me, its curved and has a few iridescent feathers. The father is an EE and the mother could either be RIR, BO, red sex link, or GL wyandottes
    It is very skiddish and scared of people.

    I would really like to figure this one out I don't need another cockerel.

    I'd have to agree with you, those tail feathers look rooish to me. Wait until it crows to be certain, though.

    Quote:I looked again today and his saddle feathers are still round. I think he is a late bloomer.
    I'll give him until August. I can only keep so many chickens in my coop over winter.
