    I have 2 Danish Brown Leghorns, I've been noticing differences in them lately and am thinking one may be a roo.... they are 10 weeks old.

    Brownie is on the left and the chicken in question. Due to the flash the comb appears washed out but is actually pretty red.

    Thank You! [​IMG]

    It's been fun watching the brown leghorns feather out. I like all the girls but the browns have the coolest coloring hands down.
