    Okay. I am sure our Roux is a cockerel. Oreo probably is too, but the comb is really different and I am not sure yet. What do ya'll think? The first couple of pics are Roux, the next ones are Oreo, and the last ones are our other chicken, Stella. She really thinks she is one of them--tries to eat with them, dust bathes with them, and even hunts crickets for them, and runs ahead to the coop all excited when we are bringing the prize insect to them![​IMG]

    Roux (white on left) and Oreo (White on right) notice combs:

    Here you go...the first two pics are another EE comb and tail, and then Oreo's. Oh, and the chicks are seven and a half weeks old.
