    I hope she is not a roo...I just sold my black and splash roos...they were larger than these ladies and their combs were both big...she has a red comb but it is not that prominent.. [​IMG]

    Quote:Oh, I hope not if you don't want a roo. I think I see 3 rows in its comb which says roo. It is really hard to tell so young on some of them. If it is a roo, then it has a super nice small comb. Breed to your black and blue pullet for splash and blue chicks [​IMG] Of course you are talking to a hatchaholic don't you know? [​IMG] One of my blue wheaten, 2 buffs and one lavender Ameraucana pullets have just started laying and I am chomping at the bit waiting for the eggs to grow large enough to incubate! I already have an order for lavender chicks in the spring, and people wanting hatching eggs from my lavenders, wheaten/blue wheaten and BLRWs! [​IMG]
