    This is Jump. She/he is getting red to her comb earlier than my other chicks, but they are all different breeds so I don't know if that means anything. I can't tell if Jump is more dark or more light. There is a dark wash on her legs, but not THAT dark. Anyone have a strong feeling about his/her gender?

    I hope it's a girl, since that's what the two in my shower look like... plus puffy cheeks since Daddy was Amer.

    Pullet, for sure! A male chick would also have much lighter feathring at this point.

    Yay! The comb has been throwing me off, getting so red. Thanks all!
