Is my Zora really a Zoro? 3.5 week old BRs

    Need a little help with my second round of chicks I'm adding to my existing flock of four. All of the sudden, I fear I'm seeing that my Zora, the most curious one of the trio, might be a Zor-OH! Both of the BRs are hatchery stock, jumping all over each other trying to work out pecking order, and Zora is usually the one who hangs back a little and watches. Lighter barring, bigger comb, lighter colored legs ... but equal in amount of feathers, feet size and same posture as what I think is the confirmed pullet.

    Zora/Oh is on the left, Zoie is on the right with my lil Lucy the red-sex link in the back.

    Too young to be certain but that is a pretty big comb and it's got a lot of white in the feathers.

    At first, both had wash on the legs - now the little suspect has barely any color on s-he's legs.
