    truth is i thought i would be able to tell by now. i have two of them, they are six weeks old now and still haven't figured it out. it's frustrating and driving me crazy. [​IMG]

    What cutie! Hard to tell at the scruffy stage, huh? Looks kind of like Red Pyle coloring, but I can't tell what kind of comb she has. Is it single? She could be shaping up to be a Red Pyle Old English Game, I'm not sure.

    I believe it's a cushion comb, just a tiny little bump. you can just make it out in the photo as it's turning pink. but that which is see able in the photo is all there is.

    here's some better shots of them both. the one with more white is the one whoms comb is already turning a brighter pink.

    My immediate thought was Red Pyle. They are a type of OEG. Google them to see pics of chicks at the age yours are.

    My second thought was sex links between a RIR male and a Leghorn female.

    Hope I helped.

    Red shoulder Yokohamas maybe? Colouring and comb would match............
