    This leghorn's comb and face is just starting to get a little pink; but its legs are smaller than the other EE, RS pullets that are the same age.

    These first three photos are of the older leghorn, estimated to be around 7 wks old.

    This photo is of both leghorns - one in the front is the younger one, probably about 6 wks old;

    They all look pretty girly to me. Most my leghorn roos had bright blood red combs by 6 weeks if not earlier.
