    To me, it appears the black is more mature than the white (I think its white anyway ;) ). But, it could just be that they were bred from different lines. My OEGB pullet looks like the white, she's only about 6-7 months old. I can't remember exactly when she was hatched. Anyway, the hens in the breeding flock she came from had nice, sizable red wattles and combs like the black :)

    She an off white color with a tan breast area i was told they are the same age and both are laying and he said the black ones tend to be nicer than the tans and the tans will remain very wild its in their nature so maybe diferent variations if that is possible :3
