    This chick is approx 6 weeks old. It is a mutt (I think it is out of an SBE (Super Blue Egg Layer : white leghorn x Ameraucana) x Cream Legbar roo). I thought it was a girl based on how it was developing (tail feathers came in quickly) but its comb is redder than I would like and I am nervous of the red coming in near the wings... what do you think? Thank you for looking!

    It looks like a pullet for now, but it is a little young to be sure.
