    My EE Jade is getting pretty. I noticed today that there is a distinct 3 row pea-comb. This chick is getting black and reddish coloring of the wings and breast areas. Her behavior has been more like whatI would expect from a rooster: staring down then chest bumping other chicks as well as jumping on other chicks (even those bigger than she is), Just need a second opinion. I can't see a way to add the pics! [​IMG]

    It sounds as if you are describing a cockerel.
