Rooster???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am curious to see if anyone knows if my Rose Comb Brown Leghorn is a rooster or hen? It is 3 1/2 weeks old. I had ordered all pullets from McMurray Hatchery but this one is sticking out to me. It has a way redder comb than the rest and it has more wattle development. Feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

I have 1 ameraucana, 2 white leghorns, 3 rhode island reds, 3 red sexlinks, 2 anconas, 2 silkies (1 rooster).

At such a young age it is hard to be certain, but with comb and wattles that red and big I think it is a cockerel. Almost zero chance it is a girl.

1 rabbit, two dogs, three cats, 50+ (number goes up & down) free-range 'mutt' hens, roos, chicks, lots of fish (tilapia) and a Jersey cow and heifer calf! Have had quail in the past.

Once brown Leghorns feather in they are sexable by color pattern.  Pullets will have a salmon chest, cockerels will have black.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. So you're all leaning towards Rooster?
