    Does anybody have any pictures of their chickens with Rose Combs? Preferably ages 4-6 weeks. A few of the wyandotte chicks we ordered were straight run and I just want to use them for comparison. Or if anybody has any pics of their chickens with distinguished combs that's great too! I love seeing other people's birds!
    Thanks in advance!

    The two off to the right were our gold laced Wyandottes at around 3ish weeks. It's almost like they don't have a comb at all. They're around 7 weeks now--I can try to get updated pics tomorrow!

    No comb at this young age means they are pullets. They will grow more and redden up when the girls are at POL (point of lay).

    I couldn't remember which were straight run and which ones were pullets out of the bunch I ordered. Some of the breeds we wanted were only available in straight run, but from the looks of these pictures, I would almost bet that mine are pullets too. (Or at least I hope so lol)

    Ya'll have some beautiful birds by the way! Thanks for sharing!
