    So my girls are about 14 weeks old and I am concerned that their combs and wattles are not red enough. What do you all think? Do they look about right for their age?

    Yes, they are just still immature. As they get closer to point of lay, their legs, combs and wattles will get brighter colored, and more developed. They are jsut tweenies. mrsk
