    I have a question for you all. I was in the coop today and noticed our leghorn was looking kinda "rooster-y". I've attached a picture, she/he is the multi-colored in the back. Her comb is much larger than the others and her waddle (sp?) is much more developed than the other girls. Other than looking like a rooster, is there a way I can sex her/him. I was thinking about taking her for a drink and asking if she preferred wine coolers or whiskey. I think the answer would make the determination for me, but might lead to some embarassment at the bar.

    Can you enlarge the pic and re-post? No way to tell with a pic that small.

    You're too much!!!

    We do need a bigger picture. I thought maybe it was the thumbnail that you can click on to make bigger, but didn't work. Just go into your downloads and re-size the image... We should be able to give you some help then [​IMG]

    Okay, I tried resizing, but it still comes up as a small thumbnail, so I will take a picture using my real camera (not my 3G-o-sauras Rex) tomorrow and repost a larger picture. Thanks for the comments, though. Stay tuned, new picture coming soon.

    Looks like a Light Brown Leghorn pullet to me. BTW it's WATTLES not WADDLES
