    Hey guys I really need your help on this one I have a 34 week old australorp hen and she has no comb! Its just this really small one that has a black tip on it and it hasn't grown one bit. I know that australorps are supposed to have those big red combs. Is this something that I don't have to worry about or should it be a concern?

    That's not an Australorp...

    Can she be a sex link even though she has tinted adolescent wings?

    Okay then, maybe a mix? [​IMG]


    @legit chickens can you get a side body shot? Where did you get her? It could just be that she's hatchery stock. The bird in my avatar is a BA pullet from a hatchery. That was when she was about 20 weeks old, but her comb has grown and reddened since

    Is her comb uncommon for a sexlink or is it normal?
