    This was ClaraBell when she was about a week old (just a guess). That is my 9-year-old's hand holding her.

    This is her just one month later. She's already an awkward teenager. But, I'm worried about all those tufted feathers around her neck, and how red her comb is coming in. I'm scared she isn't ClaraBell, but Clarence Bill. That would be sad, since we just can't have a rooster. [​IMG] So, hopefully, this is just normal for this breed (Dominique).

    I'm sorry-the width of the comb and color-plus those red wattles says otherwise:(
