    Opinions please ! I've read that white leghorn chicks are notoriously hard to tell genders apart. The consensus so far is wait and see who crows and who lays eggs lol. 8 of them have small pink combs and no visible wattles but 2 have much bigger, reddish cones and wattles....I'm thinking these are roos???

    I think 3 is a pullet, and 1 and 2 are roosters.

    Two and One are cockerels. I'm less sure about Three, but thinking pullet.
