    This is my beautiful brown leghorn, about 8 weeks old. I really don't know much about leghorns, so I wasn't sure if it is a he or she. Any thoughts? And thank you for the input.

    I thought as much, but wanted to make sure. My son's birdie and he was worried we'd have to send it away. Thanks so much!

    Brown Leghorn hens color out differently from the roos so she's definitely a hen.

    Ok I have to ask if there is such a thing as a bantam brown leghorn?? I have a couple of bantams (1 roo, 1 hen) and the hen looks exactly like yours. The roo is more red on his hackles and has a huge comb. I got them from a friend and he had no idea what they are but you may have answer my question as to that.

    She's not a bantam, for sure. I got her from mypetchicken and they are certified pure bred. I know nothing about bantams, sorry!
