    Little sweetie is a d'Uccle I'm pretty sure, maybe a mille fleur. About four weeks old. Lightning had a buddy, but Fluffernut got stepped on by my five year old and made the trip to the coop in the sky. :( So I have nobody to compare Lightning to. Her/his comb started getting red faster than any of my other breeds, but I don't know if it's a breed thing.

    Update. Almost six weeks old, has a more pronounced comb and a wattle. Bigger than any of the other ones combs and they aren't bantams.[​IMG]
