    Thanks. I thought I had only one RIR cockerel, but I guess I have two. Below is a photo of the other one, also 12 weeks but with a bigger, redder comb and the feathers around the neck are pointier and with dark tips.

    That's a Production Red Cockerel. I have two, both pullets but they look just like him otherwise.
