    Hello everyone. I know 6 weeks is too early to know for certain, but I’d love for someone knowledgeable to reassure me that Poppy’s colors aren’t screaming rooster. I’m a newbie and unfamiliar with all breeds, but I’ve noticed roosters have that beautiful brick color on their shoulders and wings. Any thoughts on Poppy? She’s one of my favorites. We bonded from day one. She always wanted to fly up onto me and just lay, she still does, but more in her time now.

    I am so happy she’s a girl! I’ve been dreading asking, but I’m so happy to know. She’s my husband’s favorite because she’s the flashiest, but her temperament is amazing. She is also top hen and is very sweet to the others, but she’s certainly in charge.

    By 6 weeks my cockerels always have more comb and redder than yours.
