    This is Hermia(for now possibly) an EE... but should I change its name [​IMG]... I definitely heard some crowing from the brooder the other day but missed seeing who it was. I have 5 in there.. 2 are almost 7 weeks old and the rest are a week younger.. I imagine that it HAD to be one of the older 2 but that still seemed a bit young for crowing to me (I'm new at this so I really have no clue on that one[​IMG]). Anyways the feathers on this pretty chicken were making me suspicious before the crowing... so what do you think.. is a name change in order?? do I have a roo?

    Looks like it to me...that comb is large and much redder than you'd see on a pullet this young and the red feathers coming in on the wing...Oberan it is!

    Cockerel. The red wing feathers coming in, the crowing, and the redness of the comb is typical of a young male chicken.
