    Chickie #3 - This one's comb and wattles pinked up and got a little bigger at about three and a half weeks. They seem to have stayed about the same size and look the same color or paler than they did then.

    Chickie #4 - My H is in denial about this one since we can't keep a rooster. He (the chick, not my H) has been noticeably larger than the others since they were about two weeks old.

    I agree; all pullets except #4.

    Why can't you keep a roo? Town ordinance? We have that, it stinks.

    #4 is a cockerel and #5 could be a late blooming cockerel. Usually, there is no red in the comb till weeks later with EEs and Ameraucanas.

    Thanks everyone.
    Do you think that with the EE's that the boys look bigger from the start?
    I'm thinking that next time, I'll pick some smaller ones.

    We will have to find a new home for the EE boy unfortunately.
