    Well here I go. I wasn't going to get all paranoid about roosters this time. Yeah right.

    So I have 2 one week old EE's and one of them is getting thick legs, angular body, long neck. Likes to the do the whole prance around and spar move. The first four or five primary wing feathers or flight feathers are much longer -not all the same length like the other chicks. But hey the chick is only a week old right?

    What do you guys think? If only I had a little patience [​IMG]

    Thanks tiki244,
    I guess its only a few weeks of waiting. With a small urban flock that obviously has to be kept cock-a-doodle free I was thinking maybe the feedstore would trade me for another chick before its official. [​IMG]
