Help me decide if this is a roo or pullet please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have a white leghorn chick that we are having a hard time telling if it is a Roo or a Pullet. We think it is a roo but some people have told us it might b a pullet. (Sorry he is a little wet we needed him a bath. I will get a better pic when I can)

Welcome to BYC

Yes, a dry photo will be more helpful in gender identification -- in addition we need to know the age of the bird (in weeks is best).  WL can cause concern regarding gender as even pullets can sprout some decent combs fairly early.

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