    One of my banty cochins ( who is blueish) started getting a really large and red comb very early. I was so downhearted because I thought she was a Roo. She was actually my first egg layer of my flock.[​IMG] She lays 5 eggs a week for me without fail. You may just have to wait.

    Oh! and YES! Bantys are mighty loud. I had to get rid of my Bantam RIR Roo because he crowed loud, and ALL DAY LONG!!
