    I ordered some chick's in May. Mostly leghorns with a few different breeds. All of my other selected breeds are as I ordered. Except this one. I ordered a male white Plymouth rock Cockerel. I'm Fairly new to the white rock breed and I'm unsure if this is what they're supposed to look like at this age. They are about 7-8 weeks old. [​IMG]

    I agree that's an Easter egger. And at this age, it may well be a cockerel. A better comb shot would help.

    That's what I was thinking too but I'm satisfied with an Easter eager. I've got two already. My hen has such a personality! The rooster is a Bantam, so he thinks he's quite the man. Thanks guys!

    Here is the best pic I could get. Most of my birds are not very tame because I raise them for meat purposes, and I don't want to get attached.
