I know it's a leghorn but is it a roo or hen? Can someone help me? I really want a roo!!!
They are 2 mths. 3 weeks

standard I think not sure
i have a longhorn just like that and i think yours is a hen (mines a hen)
Looks like a cockerel.
I think your pictures show a hen - I'm pretty sure that leghorn roosters mature early and that it's pretty obvious. We have 3 and their combs are all about the same color & size. For comparison, I posted some pics of my standard white leghorn pullets at almost 2 months. I would expect the comb/wattles on mine to get redder and larger in the next 3-4 weeks (when they're the age of yours).
7 1/2 weeks
8 weeks old (today)
Still early but looks like a pullet to me... but I also like to look at the legs and feet.
