    Female. The reddening comb means that she is reaching maturity. She should be laying in about a month or two.

    pullet, sometimes when they start laying they get nicer - you can always hope.

    Pullet. And I don't think she's a comet or other sex link, I think she's a production Red.

    I'm sure she was. But she's not a golden comet, she's a production red. Not a huge difference, except you couldn't know her sex early on like you could have with a comet.

    Production red, there appears to be no white on that girl. She looks just like my PRs.
