    We have three brown leghorns. We know one is a rooster because he tries to crow. The other one we're not sure about. They are 12 weeks old. Thanks![​IMG]. This is the one we're not sure about because he hadn't tried crowing.
    [​IMG]. This is the one we think is a girl
    [​IMG]. This is Kellog. A definite rooster

    Brown Leghorns are easily sexed by color, you can see the difference in your two cockerels and one pullet.

    Thanks! That's what I was thinking when the one was so different. The Roos are so handsome
