This one I imagine is going to stump most. I have a 4 month old Black Copper Maran pullet whose comb is completely black and has never really grown and developed like the others. I will include a picture. Any ideas what could have or could be causing this? Also do you think this is hormonal or could affect her ability to lay eggs? Out of the 4 BCM chicks I got this year 3 were Roosters!

How old is she? I've seen this in a few young Black Sex-Link pullets before. Once they approach laying age, their combs grow out a bit and redden up nicely. If the others were roos, that would explain why their combs took off quicker.
