    That is weird. If the parentage is correct(and looks very likely with this chick), the feather color says 'girl' but the comb is awfully red...... It's a blue wheaten,btw- can see gray on wing in third pic.

    The colors are less intense in person.

    Took pics just before dusk on iphone so the colors may be exaggerated????
