    Buffalo is a rhode island red and is around 5 months old and her comb and waddle has erupted in size over the last week I took the first pics about a week ago and the next ones just now. IS "she" a "he"???? Also it looks like there might be spurs growing in on her legs

    this is about a week ago. Shes on the left.

    She's just maturing and getting ready to lay eggs for you. I'd guess you'll get eggs in the next few weeks. Your other hens will do the same thing.

    My Marans' comb/wattles did that just before they started to lay. They're HUGE now.
