    I don't know anything about JG's but in most breeds the pullets will feather out much faster than cockerals.

    She was somewhere around 4 - 5 months old here.

    I am looking for some of the younger photos.

    I know Zuni has JG's, too.

    I would have to look at them standing frontal and a side view, a bigger shot.

    Mine all had what I thought was a large comb for a pullet early on but it never really got any bigger, it just remained the same proportions as they grew.

    This cold is kicking my rear because honestly I can't tell one way or the other right now.

    Sorry.
