    I have a 23 week old Americauna and Cuckoo Maran mix that does not have a comb or wattle. The place where the comb would be is flat and pinkish. At this age, shouldn't she have something?

    My EE didn't have a comb or wattles either. She just started laying a around 28-ish weeks old and developed a small red, puffy area where the comb should be.
