    Lady Gray was thought to be a female EE. Now I'm not so sure.... Any thoughts? S(he) is probably 8 or 9 weeks old.

    Earl Grey. Sorry. None of my EEs at 6 weeks have combs and certainly not that red. Maybe an EE cross?[​IMG]

    Sure looks like an Earl Gray to me too. I have EE that are about 6.5 weeks old, and their combs are much smaller and lighter.

    Thanks guys. I kinda figured. My older EE barely has a smidge of a comb right above her beak and it isn't red. Gray came from a different breeder though, so I thought perhaps a different cross. That's the second of my "girls" that aren't. I have a GLW who is turning into a beautiful boy, but I don't know what to do with them. A friend lof mine wants to caponize them so they can stay, but I kinda think it would be better for them to go live somewhere they can be proper roos. The only thing is I would feel bad separating them from their "Friends". I'd Feel bad sending Gray away without Raven, my Australorp Pullet. They are inseparable.
