    This is Pansy about 2.5 to 3 weeks old. Today I noticed the comb, is there any way that Pansy is a quick developing pullet? Wings were fully feathered at less than 1 week old. Any idea on breed? All I know is the bin was marked bantam. Comb is single and legs are pink. [​IMG]

    I'm a newbie too so I would wait for the opinion of one of the pro's, but I would say could be... she looks very very similar to most of my white leghorns of the same age, and they're all supposed to be pullets.

    I'm not sure what breed it is, but I've never had a pullet get a red comb that young. [​IMG]

    aaawww how precious. Truly it is too hard to tell right now, it would all be quessing. Some of mine had combs and feathers like that at a week old. each breed is different and sometimes it is each individual bird. What a cutie though.

    wait you all think it's a boy? What makes you say that? I'm just curious because it looks like my supposed "girls" and now I am wondering... :-(

    It's the color in the comb. Sometimes pullets can still start to grow a comb depending on the breed, but the comb on a pullet is usually yellow and never pink or red until they are much older. That little chick has a distinctly reddening comb happening!
