    Almost five months old. Thought she's a hen because of no comb development. But she/.he has developed long tail feathers. Is Edna a rooster???

    'Ed' is indeed a cockerel.

    Agree, Edna is an Edward.

    Rose combs don't develop like straight combs do, and I agree even for a rose comb it's smallish for the age. But that feathering and coloring is all male.

    That's a strawberry comb, they don't get very big and red until much more mature
