4.5 week old leghorn, male or female?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 


male or female leghorn. What do you guys think?
post #2 of 8

Not showing any blatant cockerel characteristics, so would say pullet for now *but* that is purely preliminary and should be re-assessed in another 2 weeks or more as 6+ weeks is a better time to get serious about gender ID except for those that show absolutely screaming signs (ie large pink comb/wattles, or those with gender based feathering, etc).

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Pullet

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Looks like a pullet for now.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
