His comb is red compared to the rest of the hens. He will be called Mr Fluffy Cheeks :0)


and is tail feathers are straighter then the rest. The last few days I have noticed that someone is plucking
his back feathers (or the new ones are coming in)

Forbsix weeks I would say cockerel. The comb is very red. I would expect to see some red feathers soon on those shoulders.

Mr Fluffy Cheeks is lucky to have a good home. My EE cockerel's comb also turned bright raspberry red at the same age as yours and was just as prominent in profile. Soon after, the dark red patches slowly developed on his upper wings - the mark of a roo. We're just waiting for the first crow now (almost 12 weeks). EEs are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get!

Thats what I thought too. We have guessed for over 2 weeks now that he is. I have encouraged my girls to
hold him lots so that he hopefully he will be nice.
