Is my Sunny a Sonny, or am I just paranoid?

    OK, so I kind of think I'm just over reacting, but I'm new to this so... Sunny is a 12 week old Welsummer who has recently and suddenly started developing her comb and wattles. There are five others her age and none of them is showing much of anything in terms of comb and wattles yet. And Sunny's are much rosier than my older girls (who are almost 16 weeks now). And there's also just something about the way she carries herself - kind of taller than the others. I can't see any coloring coming in anywhere that would suggest a roo, though. Am I over reacting?

    I think she looks like a Sunny too. I don't see any pointy saddle feathers or hackle feathers comming in yet.

    Sunny looks JUST like my Shirley, who is a little bit older than her, but not all chickens mature and grow at the same rate. I'm pretty sure your Sunny is a pullet.
