    Ok I posted this and some other questions on the Egg laying/Behaviors forum, lets see if yall know what I have :)
    Also I apologize for my hen's boy names. I have never owned a female animal in my life, it was so odd to name something a girl name.
    All of them are the same age I got them the second week in April. I have no idea how old they were then, but I have had them 18 weeks.
    I picked out of two pens getting a mix of Big Whites, and Brown and Reds. The exact breed I couldn't say, in my ignorance of just wanting new pets I didn't care. Of course, now, I regret my first few choices as a chicken owner . Anyway...I have two for sure Leghorns.One of my chickens, Oscar, looks like a Leghorn Pullet but she still has a small comb and no wattle, and it is pale pink. At 18 or more weeks , while the other leghorns already have a bright red flop and are laying? Could it be she is a different breed? Because she hasn't laid yet either.

    White Leghorn pullet. Some leghorns just don't develop as large of comb/wattles as others.

    Agree white Leghorn pullet. Some girls just develop slower is all.
