    At 5 months all 3 of my BO hens had combs and wattles more like Bluebell (actually one of mine is named Bluebell too) And they've been laying for 3 months now, so I know they're girls. [​IMG] I think your BO is just slower to mature.
    ETA: Here's MY Bluebell, at 6 months...

    I would be careful putting your baby down that low with a chicken...eyeballs look so much like grapes!

    Quote:Yeah, I was right there... and the chickens are pretty baby-shy for some reason (probably those yanking hands) They won't get close enough for him to grab, but just in case I was lying right next to him (except to grab a quick pic) [​IMG]
