    Hey there.

    New to the forum. But have been on here more times then I can count. With so many questions answered and new one forming. But my biggest one is my nicest but also most sassiest hen looks like nothing I've seen or searched. Maybe someone can tell me what breed she is. [​IMG]

    Spurs take a while to grow out and his comb is a pea comb with three rows of peas in it which is common with EE roosters. Female EEs usually have a single row of peas in the comb.

    Yes he is a cockerel. For me the giveaway was the dark red coloring over wings.
