    Greetings, nae-nae, and [​IMG]! Pleased to have you aboard! Some pullets are slower to develop combs. I wouldn't worry about it. Best of luck to you and thanks for joining BYC!!

There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC!
    As your little one is still so young the lack of significant comb development is not anything to worry about. If you look where the comb will be you will see the beginnings of a comb - as she grows and mature, her comb will grow in size and then, as she nears the point of laying eggs, it will turn red.
    Do you just have the one chick?
