    Hi
    Can you please help solve the gender identity crisis for our 5week old chick...we have figured out his/her brothers and sisters but are confused with this one....
    acts very un-roo-like but has quite a pink pea comb. He/she is pretty camera shy but does hold his/her tail more like the australorp cockrel in the photo below. We are thinking EE cockrel but would really appreciate your thoughts...

    loves sunbathing

    Orpingtons have single combs. I vote for EE roo.
