    I have a girl like that...pale peach/creamy white withe a couple of stray black feathers at the neck. Don't have any photos because this group is still quite flighty.

    Yeah, the comb!! Mine has nothing almost! I am perplexed. I can only assume by her body shape and behavior mixed with everything else, I have a girl, although I won't hold my breath until I get an egg or a crow :-/

    Yes yours is quite small and flat to be a 15 week old roo.When I did a close up of your 15 week old with my 10 week old the difference is glaring. I'll be shocked if yours turns out to be a roo .The coloring is odd because a lot of the time the whitish ones turn out to be roos like mine. A mix of white gold and black with some red thrown in on the wings.
    But maybe you are one of the lucky ones who gets the random pullet![​IMG]You did say she has coloring coming in all over the body so the pattern may be evening itself out.Guess we'll find out in a few weeks. Keep us updated![​IMG]

    that is a huge bummer for me. I gave away my prettier hen with the pea comb to keep the one my daughter likes (single comb and plain looking). The entire point was to have green or blue eggs. Lesson learned. I'm learning so much on this thread. Thank you. [​IMG]

    Yes, the more time that goes by, the more the reddish color spreads. It is all over her formerly pure white chest now. Thanks so much for the input, I will keep it updated when I figure it all out!

    Is this a rooster. I know it is a back shot, I can get a front shot if I have to.[​IMG]
