    Hi everyone!
    My 15 week old Silver Laced Wyandotte is looking very red in the face. Is this normal for a pullet her age or do I have a roo? Her name is Mrs. Pigglewiggle (hopefully).
    Thanks!

    Totally a pullet! She'll start laying in theory in about 7 or so weeks, and as she gets close her comb/wattles will get redder. By that age--if she were a roo--they should be much more pronounced.
