    I don't know is my Ancona is a she or a he. "She" is about 4 months old now, hasn't crowed - at least not what I think of as acrow, has been pretty docile, and doesn't have long tail feathers, but boy does she have a big comb and wattles. Any idea if she will lay an egg?

    ok, I must have defective ancona.
    I have a trio that is 5 months old and my cockeral looks like that and my pullets have smaller combs and no wattles. I understand they will get bigger when they get older. I got them from a breeder. I will try to get pics of mine tomorrow in the light.....

    maybe yours matured faster than mine?
    or mine are really bad.......
    maybe mine are slow because I live where it's real cold.
    starting to really question the quality of mine [​IMG]
