    Hi all,

    Just looking for some feedback about this one. Almost 18 weeks. Haven't heard a crow and no comb or wattle but the feathers have me thinking it's a he.

    I think I see the beginnings of saddle feathers which would indicate cockerel. Hopefully someone will be able to give you a definite answer. Gorgeous bird, BTW!

    Yep. It's a boy.
    Looks sort of like my EE cockerel. 0807191526.jpg Your's comb should get bigger, & redder as he grows up.

    Looks like a cockerel to me, some are later maturers than others . he may be taking after the Ameracauna side and later maturing. or if you already have a rooster being subordinate to not provoke the other rooster
