    We got 17 "pullets" a month back and this little thing was always the smallest and most quiet. Now that they are all showing their true colors, we are noticing that this little "guy" is more bold, pecks often and suddenly has waddles and a HUGE red comb. My husband and I think roo.. what do you think?[​IMG] We aren't sure if age either, maybe 6 weeks?

    Oh dear, that's what we thought. Any thoughts on breed? We most likely won't keep him because we discovered another rooster who is an EE and the most friendly of all the birds.

    Looks like a mixed breed cockerel.
