    I have 4 EE and 1 amerileg. The EEs are 4wks today, the Amerileg is 10days younger than the EEs but made a weird noise tonight. It was not the normal peeping they do, it was deeper. not a crow but def. some sort of call? The other pullets also pick at this one and it's comb is redder than the others. Will pullets pick at a cockeral or is just because she is a little younger? I have no idea if the comb just redder because its a diff. mix than the rest or if my beautful girl is a handsome boy ?????

    Here is a pic from 1 wk ago, chick is 18days old in pic

    I'm hesitant to say roo, largely because a couple of my 15 week old pullets have taken that stance occasionally when they were younger. [​IMG] I think it's too close to call. If a red comb is starting, then I'd say roo, but otherwise [​IMG] I think it's a little early to tell.

    I know I cant be sure until egg laying time, but today the tables turned and this chick that is normally getting picked on was bossing everyone around [​IMG] hoping she just got tired of being on the bottom of the pecking order and not showing a roo side

    That comb is looking pretty darn red... You meant 25 DAYS, right?

    Wouldnt 25 weeks mean that that bird should be almost completely mature? (6 months) Or did i mis understand it?

    Im thinking that is a roo... sorry [​IMG] But he looks like a handsome boy! [​IMG]

    Oops YES only 25 DAYS. I fixed it, lol. Would it be that red on a pullet leghorn since that's what the mix is? I keep trying to tell myself it's just because it's a diff mix.
