    I know Siouxsie is an EE, but idk if she is a he we will have to start calling her Sue! She never crows like her RIR buddy Maggot in the 3rd pic. Def the big boy in charge. But until his comb went super red I thought she must be the Roo. Now I'm not so sure... but look at those tailfeathers. That screams Roo, don't it! They are about 13 weeks now.


    Siouxie's tail.

    Definately a roo and a beautiful one at that! If Maggot is the head roo, then any other roos may not crow.

    It's a he EE, it has saddle feathers coming in and a monster comb for an EE. He is a handsome fellow! I love the green tail feathers! [​IMG]

    Quote:Oooooh! Well that makes sense... So, how many more ladies do I need to make both boys happy, can't get rid of either and it leaves me with one potentially good layer. Special needs Rio may not live long enough to lay.

    I would say Maggot is a roo also, you need 8-10 girls per each boy....or at least 15 pullets
