The young creles were bouncing off each other like popcorn.  Time to sort.  There are only 4 pullets -- they will all stay.  An Old English Game bantam cockrel is to have a straight single comb with 5 even points.  I took out all the cockrels with a crooked combs and then the ones with more than five points.  Only two cockrels were left.  Here is the lucky winner.  Graceful and stylish, I think.



Look how dark the pullets are.  I wasn't expecting that.

When the little cockrel realized that he had all the women to himself, he was super happy -- dancing and crowing.  He is raising up to crow in the picture.

Here are some of the "extra" crele cockrels.  They are in the grow out pen with the young buckeyes.
