    Bought this one as a sexed day old chick about three months ago.

    My guess is that it is an Ancona Cockerel? Your thoughts please?

    looks like a ex(sp) leghorn since it has a white earlobe, and I think its a pullet getting ready to lay, as I dont see sickle or saddle feathers

    Those legs....those legs look like man legs. Body shape says leghorn to me.

    But I thought that only the hens combs flopped over and the Roos combs stood up.?.? At least in all the pics I looked at it was that way.
