    I have had a gut geeling since i got the littles but couldn't be sure. I noticed today the wattle and high comb is turning pretty dark. The other 3 dont have anything close to this.

    About 8 weeks old.

    Thanks!

    Yea! I am excited because her bigger redder comb is how I ID her. I have a few others who I can barely tell apart.

    Thanks!

    In pullets, a larger, redder comb indicates a quicker maturing bird. She will likely be your first layer.
