white leghorns are pretty early. a few weeks old and it is pretty evident.

in this pic: 2 males in front, female in back.

yep. he's standing on a firm foundation. not just for morality sakes, but that head needs help.

watch for pink combs fairly quickly on the cockerels. very yellow combs for the pullets.​

My five little leghorns are just over 3 weeks and it's obvious that I've got 3 roos and 2 pullets.
