    I bought 4 RIR ladies or so I thought. What do you think of this one. Its not the biggest RIR out of the group but its advanced growth in its comb is making me nervous.

    the comb is pink and not very red, is that a marker of sex ?

    My girlfriend is having a field day with this ! She knew it all along and I just figured that "Big Betty Red" was just a quick sprouter.
