    Any help is appreciated! She wandered into my yard at 6 weeks as a stray and I have been trying to learn everything I can about her since then. I am fairly convinced she's a she!

    It does look like a girl but I don't know what breed.

    Oh, good! Thank you. I really thought she was a she but I just wasn't sure.

    That's a roo if it's only 4 months old. Definitely a roo.

    And I'd say probably a leghorn.

    Quote:x2, although I see some yellow? - If it has yellow or orange on it, it is a Sex Link cockerel.

    Or I could be wrong. [​IMG] I hope I'm right but I haven't had chickens for very long.

    Could you get a picture closer to the level of the comb? That might help. Also I agree it's a leghorn mix.
