White Leghorns - 6 wks - pullets or cockerels?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Any help is appreciated. There are a total of 5 of them and they hatched 8/27/15. I think I have 4 cockerels and 1 pullet, but I'm really hoping I'm wrong.

I agree with you regarding gender; I only see one pullet in your pics. However I'm questioning the breed. These birds all look too heavily bodied to me for White Leghorns and I'm thinking you have White Rocks instead. If I'm correct, as they mature their earlobes will turn red instead of staying white.

You totally got me, they are a white leghorn / delaware mix. I didn't think that would make too much of a difference, but I guess I could be wrong.

Ah, that definitely explains the heavier bodies. :o)

3 from brown eggs, 2 from white.

 

White leghorn rooster over white leghorn hens and 1 delaware hen.

So theoretically, I have 3 Delaware/leghorns and 2 White leghorns
