Is she a Black Australorp?

    I raised this pullet from a hatchling and was told she was a Black Australorp. She is now 6 months old and just doesn't look like I thought an Australorp should at this age. She doesn't hardly have a comb at all, will it grow when she is ready to lay? Her comb isn't very red so I am assuming she isn't going to lay anytime soon.

    She looks like my Black Australorp cross. I have no idea what she is crossed with, but her comb is also very tiny in comparison with my other Australorp. Mine has not started laying yet, she is about 5 months old and her face is just now starting to flush red....hopefully soon.
