    I thought Ace was a pullet, but not sure now. Comb looks like it's getting darker red vs dusty pink color it was. And Ace is very vocal in morning. No eggs yet @ 18 weeks.

    Welcome to BYC.
    This is not the best photo for gender identification due to the angle of the bird -- can you get a photo that shows Ace in a full side profile in natural lighting?

    Getting some exercise in. Chasing free ranging chickens for pics is challenging. As soon as I get phone out for pic they run [​IMG]
