I have five exchequer leghorns, all coming up on four months old. Two have minimal combs, three have significant combs but are still pinkish except the one who has a very red comb. I've read that these birds are known for early development of combs and wattles so I'm thinking that they may all be pullets. I have seen no evidence of saddle feathers and quite honestly the cape feathers look the same on the birds with the minimal combs as on the one with the very red comb. Both pics are the same bird, the second is the best I could get of the back side of her (please please please be a her). Thoughts?
