    Hi. Hatched this chick from an egg about 12 weeks ago. Any idea of breed and sex? Thinking leghorn and rooster.

    I suspect it's a pullet as well. Don't think it's a Leghorn, it's a bit too plump. Maybe a Rhode Island White, or a White Rock?

    Single comb. I ordered the egg when my black aracauna went broody. And she's pure white. Glad to hear you guys think pullet.

    I think it could be a Rhode Island White or a White Plymouth Rock. Both are really nice chickens. I'm not 100% sure, but it's pretty, anyhow!
