    Hi there,

    Anyone know what type of chicken this may be and hen or rooster?! She’s about 8wks old and decent size - about double the size of our barred rock.

    Thx!

    At 8 weeks that looks like a cockerel. It might be a white leghorn but it's hard for me to tell, a lot of white chickens start out looking very similar.

    100% cockerel. :) Leghorns shouldn't be larger than Barred Rocks, unless of course this one is developing much more quickly.

    Eh, if it is a Leghorn, I wouldn't yet say 100% male.

    Any other breed with such a pink comb so early, sure.

    But my white Leghorns are always tricking me, with the girls at times pinking up at insane early ages. :confused:

    Could be a white rock. I think it's a boy as well.

    We have a light Brahma that’s double the size of our other 5 day old chicks.

    If it's growing especially quick..... it's a meat chicken.
