    I have 14 chicks that are 5 weeks old. They sent me an extra easter egger. I've started noticing that he/she acts and looks a little different. I didn't order one but would be happy to have a rooster ;-) it has 3 distinct rows on the comb and it's a reddish color. Red is also on the body. What do you think??[​IMG]

    By the comb my guess is cockerel but we'll need a better picture to be sure.
