Does Phoebe need a name change?

I'm completely new to chickens. "Phoebe" is an 8-week-old EE and sold as a sexed pullet. Well, a week or so ago her comb turned bright red. Her legs look thick to me, but what do I know? She doesn't have any saddle feathers yet and so far no crowing (knock on wood). Overall, "she" is pretty laid back.

I'm sorry about the quality of the face shots. We just couldn't get the camera to focus on the bird.

(The thumbnails do link to slightly bigger pictures. If the pictures are too small, please let me know and I'll upload larger ones.)

Needs a name change..
Thank you, all. That's what I was afraid of.

So far he's been very gentle. A couple of my hens are more aggressive. But he needs to keep quiet if he's going to stay; I'm in the city.
