    Idk if this is the right place to post this, but I picked up a too to add to my hens for free on craigslist. The problem is is the lady didn't know for sure if it was a rule. So if I get a too fine if not then I get a pullet almost ready to lay. Its 15 was old and is what I was told was a white rock but I believe its actually a white leghorn. Its tall and skittish and has long legs and is fairly slender and was 2x bigger than the rest of her hens it looks like a too but acts like a hen has no spurs and doesn't crow, she said it never has. If this isn't a too I want to get a real too, my problem is isn't white leghorns quick developers? If so wouldn't it make sense that this is a hen and that's why it was 2x bigger than the rest of the ladies hens?
