I have a cockerel, Max, who's around 18 weeks old now. As of yet his comb has not gotten dark red or that big. His tail is definitely looking "roosterish" as his is coloring. He's supposed to be a standard EE, though he could be a mix. I also have a bantam EE cockerel who is all rooster at the same age...has been crowing for a couple months. Max is definitely submissive to the bantam, which is amusing since he's twice my bantam's size. My question is, do standard's mature slower than bantams? Max hasn't even attempted to crow and basically acts like he's one of the girls. He also has the brightest green legs I've ever seen! This is Max from a few weeks ago. My bantam of the same age as Max!
