I think my 2 brown leghorns are roo's....anyone have pics at this age to compare?
Brown leghorn roos will be very obvious by 6 weeks. Their combs and wattles should be quite large and red, and their coloring will start to look different than the pullets. That is if they're single comb birds. Brown leghorns also come in rose comb. Which is yours?
I'm looking through pics, and will see if I can find a pic of my brown leghorn at that age, or close to it.
also may i ask to post pictures of older about 4 months brown leghorns i need to identify if they are what ideal said they might be lol
Okay, found a pic of a single-combed brown leghorn pullet at 8 weeks. Hopefully that's close enough. Her comb was still small and yellowish.
Here's about 4 months old, though the sun was bright in my camera so the color's not great. Same pullet as the picture I posted up there ^
i know now my boys are not brown leghorns
The pullets start showing that light tan stripe in the middle of their feathers, I think it's called pencilling.
Mine have much bigger and redder combs, I have no Leghorn pullets to compare them to, they were part of a mixed dozen I picked out (supposed to have all been pullets). Thanks for the pics!
