    Is this a Rooster? This is my 12w EE. I've already had 2 other Rooster in my flock of 5-order of EE females. This mostly white bird is bigger than the rest and is starting to get a red comb and pointy tail feathers. Could it be that she is just slightly more mature with already starting to grow a red comb?

    Geeze, I think mypetchicken screwed up my order.

    The sickle feathers in the tail and the pointy hackle feathers sure look like you may have a roo --

    I think that is probably a cockerel. The amount of color in the comb, the curve of the tail feathers remind me of mine when he was that age.
