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!
