In the Brooder

Ohhhh!!!! Interesting! I’ll be staring at my little one for awhile and waiting for crowing or not. But appreciate the comparison. This is helpful too.That comb does look rather red for an ameraucana pullet, although possible for a mix? For what it's worth, this here is Curly at only 2 months, and I think his comb looks quite a bit more developed than your 3-month-old. I can't find a 3-month pic, but by 4 months Curly had full on hackle/saddle feathers.
Now I have six 10-week olds in my yard, and I've wasted a ridiculous amount of time staring at their combs. I know I'll know when I know and not before, but I still can't stop myself trying to figure it out!
