    Definitely a hen. Couldn't say for sure how old, but appears to be full grown. She's pretty.

    [​IMG] Anyone want to guess if this is a male or female. It is supposed to be female. It's an Easter Egger!

    This is definitely a hen. I'd agree around five months. Her comb isn't quite red enough to be laying, but she looks like she's getting close.

    Wow thanks!! Hopefully I can see what color she lays! So her comb has to get redder?
