    ees can have a straight comb, I have one myself (avatar). He's a crooked beak with some issuses [​IMG] but he came off my mom's ee flock so I know he's an ee. But yours is a roo.

    My friend hatched it out of his with some of our silkies.

    He said its.... hmmm I thought it was an ee cause all the eggs we use to get from him are green. Jeff said "No honey he said its an Ameraucana mix".....

    So? U think roo? [​IMG]

    Regardless of what it is... it has a home until our silkies are big enough to join the coop. Its a good "momma" and they are all 1/2 its size and sleep under it and follow it around the yard. So its a good "parenting hatchmate"

    rooster Im sorry at that age to have the redness and comb size with the wattles -rooster
    and Straight combed hens have less than a 3% chance of laying a colored egg. I have one! brown eggs-nice but brown...
    a rooster can be hatched from an EE egg and still have a straight comb BUT will highly unlikely pass on that colored egg gene to his chicks...
