Here is an image of my 5 month old EE who very suddenly (within the last week) has started displaying rooster-like feathers and may have even been trying to crow this morning! This bird has been at or near the bottom of the pecking order in my small flock since I got it 3 months ago. Behind him/her can be seen my other EE who is now 6 months. Is this breed known to have pullets/hens who display some rooster-like qualities or do I just have a VERY late bloomer here??! When I first got this bird, it was fully feathered with a very nice long, straight tail and was by far the most friendly - would even jump into my lap to snuggle! The other roosters I had both had large wattles & combs and NO tails and were crowing at around 2-2.5 months. Anyone have any ideas/experience with this?? Please advise!
