    This is one of my almost 10 week old BR's. It is a little smaller than the others but has the biggest comb. These are the best pictures I could get of it...hope they are good enough.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    She looks an awful lot like my 9 week old pullet or at least what I'm fairly sure is a pullet [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for your posts. I was just curious b/c she had such a big comb compared to the others and her tail feathers go strait up. The others tail feathers lay flat along their back.....I hope that makes sense.
