    Hi everyone - just trying to figure out if we have a roo. Our wellsummer definitely is one, but this ameraucana is getting a pretty big comb. He/She doesn't flap their wings or posture at all, and isn't crowing at 3 months old, whereas our wellsummer began crowing at about 6 weeks. The comb has 3 little ridges pointing back towards the top of the head, which is kind of hard to see in this photo. Thanks for the help

    Cockerel. The three rows on the pea comb, plus how much comb for age, is the giveaway.
