    [​IMG] a late maturing Roo?

    Big Birds cousin here just started growing a comb and wattles about 2 weeks ago, but her wattles have been more pink than her sister for weeks before that. They are 10 weeks old. The other BO that I have is still pretty yellow. I dont see any shiny hackle or saddle feathers
