    thanks! I thought it was a hen but a couple of the others look like this ( which is why I was a little bit worried)

    Almost no crest and what is there is dark.
     
  5. Some hens have a little more comb and waddle then others. Its nothing to be alarmed about. In that case you have to just look at the body shape not the head.
