    I've been wondering about my Phoenix "girl" because of the pinking wattles and red feathers starting to grow in around the shoulder area. Any ideas? She's about 4 1/2 weeks old. Her tail isn't nearly as long as his, and she's much darker. Also, does anybody know what color variation they are? I'm suspecting Black Breasted, or something in that vicinity, but I am a novice with this breed. [​IMG] Thanks!

    Here's Arizona, the handsome boy, for comparison.

    Thank you! [​IMG] I really don't know anything about them, not even what variety they are, but they're very pretty. Arizona's tail (not pictured) is LONG!

    Thanks for the input! [​IMG] My gut feeling was that she was a pullet, but I just needed a second opinion.

    Of course! But would it be alright if I posted them tomorrow? [​IMG] I don't have the pictures off the camera onto the computer yet......
