    This 7 week old white leghorn has way bigger and thicker feet than my other one. It's comb is redder and bigger. It's waddles are way bigger. It's body is bigger and fuller. It is way more aggressive.

    I believe your Bird is a rooster! The same thing happened to one of my rir in my last batch of chicks and all the chicks between 4-5 weeks that had big feet and big combs, turned out to be roosters

    Yeah, it's like it has "kankles" compared to my other white leghorn. In fact compared to my all 4 of my other chicks.

    You can also find out if its a rooster by looking at his saddle feathers, they will start to point downward at around 9 weeks
