18 weeks old, Pearl-White Leghorn from Murray McMurray

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

First time with chickens and I purchased 5 Pearl-White Leghorn and 10 Cornish Rock X and the threw in a free rare bread. All were purchased as females except for the freebie...  which turned out to be a male Cuckoo Maran. All the Cornish Rocks X were butchered at 10 week and now I have 4 Pearl-White Leghorns left and the Cuckoo Maran. 

Still waiting for eggs but I'm not sure how this works with it being fall now.

 

Any way so I am wondering is if any of them are cockerels.

 

This is the one i am most curious about... as it has the largest comb of the 4 of them. I thought I had other pictures of all of them but  when I pulled them up on here a couple didn't turn out.

 

 

 

 

 

here is the Cuckoo Maran

All your Leghorns look like pullets.

 

That first girl looks closest to laying, but still a month or so out from the looks of her comb. It needs to get bright red and plump, indicating sexual maturity and thus..eggs!

The Leghorns all look like pullets to me. The Marans is a cockerel.

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!
