    I've posted this chick before, with the answer that it was a pullet. Since that post this one has grown a bit faster than another white leghorn that I have. The comb is definitely larger and redder. Unfortunately, I need to get rid of my leghorns to make room for our two new lavender orpingtons. I don't know the exact age of theleghorn, but I'm guessing ~8 weeks. I just want to make sure I really do give away two pullets and not a pullet and a cockerel.

    I do not have experience with brown leghorns, but going on age and what I see, I'm going with roo.
    Hopefully, someone else will chime in.

    Pullet..you might want to consider keeping her. Looks like a very nice bird.

    She's still a pullet. A Cockerel would be coloring in differently.

    Thanks all. I really would like to keep her as she's turning out very pretty, and will be an egg-laying machine, I'm sure. Unfortunately, space is limited, and I got two lavender orpington's with the understanding I would need to get rid of two other chicks. [​IMG]
