    I'm thinking this is an EE cockerel, almost 15 weeks old. Want to see what the rest of you think before I try to sell him. I don't want to get rid of a pullet as I have encountered neighbours that are always desperate for eggs.

    It looks pretty big but I can't really tell with his tail like that. Does he always hold it low like that? If you could get another pic I might be able to tell.

    Well, the tail feathers look a little bit curved and may be sickle feathers.

    He's holding it low because it's raining. [​IMG] [​IMG] I will see if I can catch him with his tail up.

    Looks like saddle feathers and dark patches coming in on the wings, might want to get a better picture of his back, but it looks like a boy to me. I have to say those are some white legs, do you know what cross he is?

    The lady I bought the eggs from just said EE, and I never saw her flock. Most of the chicks from that batch have whitish-pinky legs, so maybe a gene from the rooster? (She only had one rooster)

    Interesting that he would keep the white legs, he does have a peacomb, and he is such a solid red/orange color too. Wonder if she had a buff orpington. Sorry yours looks to be a roo.
