I purchased two "roosters" from a 10 year old girl who was trying to earn some money for summer vacation. They are NPIP Easter Eggers. Beautiful birds. When I got said birds home I began to notice some very distinct difference between the two.
The first bird is smaller and has virtually no comb, plain grey tail feathers, and carries the tail lower.

The second is larger and has a brighter redder comb, beautiful shiny green feathers in his back and tail, and carries his tail feathers erect. He seems a lot more bossy than the first

The close up facial picture is of the first bird who I suspect is a hen. They are young birds hatched on March 3rd.
Please excuse the pen, it's due for a good cleaning.

I was hoping that maybe I had gotten lucky. Oh well, looks like bird number 1 will be going to the cook pot with my RIR roosters. :drool not sure how that will work though. I've never hear of an EE rooster being eaten before.
