    The one OEG that's super sweet and stuck like glue to me, I think is a little roo:-( It's 6 wks old now and still really really sweet but it's comb is bigger than the ones that I know are girls but smaller that the ones I know for sure are roos.

    I've been looking at my mille fluers and the hens combs are smaller than my OEG hen. The pullets with the tiny combs are OEG/MF mixes so not sure if that could be the size difference??

    Here's the one that's stuck to me. It's full OEG.

    Here's one of the mixes I'm keeping. It's wierd b/c she did have feathers on her legs but now there is none?? All the other mixes still have feathers.

    The first one is a cockerel. IMO, the pullet looks like a pure brassyback oegb.

    Well somehow I put the wrong pic of the 2nd one....it's one I'm keeping too but I had another pic.

    Yes, the 2nd one would be full OEG. It's the only full blooded one that is that color. She's a sweetheart too!!
