I went to get some australorps and decided this one needed to come home with us too. Any guesses?
Mixed breed cockerel.
agree with donrae
Well, at least he's pretty!
It may sound silly, but what's the distinguishing feature? I figured the wattle & comb would be a bit bigger for the size it is. I hope it doesnt take too long before I can tell on my own..
Easter Egger cockerel
What about it screams cockerel? Just trying to learn..
The color is the giveaway. Males are the only ones that have that red leakage on the wing/shoulder area. Females don't have that coloring.
With that coloring, we didn't need to ask about the age of the bird. If it were a solid color, I would have asked about age. The size and redness of the comb would then be the key. Plus, this is a pea combed bird. Pea combed females have smaller combs with usually one row down the middle. Male pea combed birds have the three rows, and it's larger and plumper. Pea combed birds have small wattles, so that can throw folks off sometimes.
