    This OE "girl" has me concerned. Looked like a pullet all along till her comb turned red.
    This first picture doesn't show the color of her comb- the other 3 do. She is 9-10 weeks.
    Thank you for any opinions!

    With a comb that big and red at that age, your chick is probably a cockerel [​IMG]
