    I had a batch of 5 chicks, and I liked this one the best and rehomed the others. It was slightly larger than the others. Now that it's maturing, I'm starting to think roo. It's about 10 weeks old or so... not entirely sure but that's my guess. Also not sure of the breed... guessing it's a mutt.

    Check out that comb! Pretty red to be a pullet, right? Especially at this age? And are those hackle feathers forming? They seem pretty narrow and stringy to be a pullet....

    Part of the reason I'm thinking roo is the thick legs...

    10 weeks? Definite boy there. He's good looking, sort of like patchwork.

    There is another post on here with that coloring I think it is close to the top. nifty50chick posted a roo with similar coloring. Might be worth a look.
    I have no clue what breed he/she may be. sorry

    The coloring is definitely Crele, I don't know what breed though. It could be standard or bantam old english game depending on its size. I attached a website link from cackle hatchery for comparison. http://www.cacklehatchery.com/oegbantams.htm#crele

    Quote:You're right, there's definitely some crele coloring in there! Now I'm even more excited to see him grow up! I wanted a hen because I already have a big roo, but I might keep this little guy in a different coop...
