    I'm new to chickens but they look a lot like the ones we just got.

    I say Barred Rock (you said your g'ma doesn't have them but from the picture the chick looks more like this one than the one below)

    Will my SFH's comb turn red when she's about to start laying? She's a beautiful 5-6 month old pullet, and her comb is still very pale. Is this a breed like others with which I am more familiar where I can expect her comb to redden up as she hits point of lay? Thank you!

    I would say boy personally. Silkie roosters have feathers that come off the back of their head. I have a white silkie roo and he looks almost identical.

    This is Liberty at Twelve weeks she's now sixteen weeks and can't see a thing, she's going to get a trim. We put her crest in a pony tail and her hatchmate pulls it out.

    How old is this chick? I'm guessing girl because of that bonnet and short neck.
