It's 3 months old and I thought the combs too big for a pullet.. but I can't see any hackle feathers like my other roos the same age but they are different breeds

Leghorns get large combs and wattles very early. The combs and wattles on a 4 month old Leghorn pullet are larger than the combs and wattles on the full grown roosters of many breeds.
