    This is snowball is almost 11 weeks old...She seems to have a single comb..Its very tiny but if you look closly its like a little bump.

    I was wondering if Snowball is really a girl...This is a best pic I could get she was with the other 3 chicks playing in their water So I took it as a good time to get a good picture of her comb while her head was wet. She is not very friendly and often bites me..LOL

    I know she is still very young...but I have 2 that are only 7 weeks old that already have a noticable comb with color.

    So what do you think?
