    Ok so I've been fairly sure for a while now that our bantam cochin was a pullet, but I'm posting pictures just to make sure. It's gotten serious comb and wattle growth in the past week (I lost track of it's age, if I had to guess I'd say 26-30 weeks). I'm also aware of the faulty comb, but I wasn't planning to show anyway so I don't mind.

    She's a hen, and I'd say she should be laying soon. :)
