    this is one of my three week old Ancona Leghorns. Out of the pullet bin at TSC. Her comb is larger and SOMETIMEs shows a reddish hue. I'm not sure though. What do you think? PICS aren't great, camera is really weird.

    my leghorn pullets are almost at laying age and still have very little comb. the browns were the same way.

    i vote possible dude. can you get a pic of he/she including the whole head, body and legs?
