    These "girls" are around 16 weeks old right now, and they seemed exactly the same until the last week or two where this ones comb just blew up. I know this can happen, but my wife is wondering if the one is a male. I don't think so, because I can't see any saddle feathers, but if anyone does then I was looking at the wrong thing completely. lol

    Both pullets. The huge red comb and wattles means she'll be laying very soon! [​IMG]

    Pretty hen, she's just getting mature enough to give you eggs soon. The other one will look just like her in a while.
