Here she is at 8 weeks. You can see a little of the brown.

Here you can see the very light brown in the lacing on her chest.

And here are 2 closeups so you can see a little clearer. You can also see the iridescent green on the black parts. So pretty. smile

I thought that at first glance, but if you look closer, they are rounder than a cockerels would be.  Even the hackles are shaped round while the coloring is spiky looking.  The face and head all say girl on that one too.  Plus it is not pure, it has a single comb and she is a bit off in coloration, maybe the shade of gold or something just throws it off from standard a bit too much.

Yeah, you're right. But I will say that the single comb doesn't mean that she's not pure. It's just a genetic fault.
