    These are pics of my 6 week old white leghorn chicks. I'm thinking I have one pullet and one rooster? Can anyone validate that for me from these pics? If I have a rooster, I gotta find him a new home.

    Not 100% on the first one but I'm thinking both are cockerels

    I think they are both pullets. Neither has any wattle development, and both combs are still pink. A 6 week old cockerel would have a larger, much redder comb and wattles.

    I think both pullets. Leghorn boys announce themselves very early.
