    Hi guys!
    Rescued these poor sods from the meat man at an auction Wednesday. They are exchequer leghorns, and 7 weeks old. They wouldn't sell so they were starting the box at 50p. I won them for £1.50/$2.80. Any idea on sexing them?

    I'm seeing pretty much cockerels, even for leghorns that is a lot combs/wattles at seven weeks.

    In the first 2 pics, I'd call those 2 a pair. My white Leghorns had some pretty good sized head gear at around 7 weeks old, and they were all girls. Any chicks with red combs and wattles like the bird on the left of the first 2 pictures are probably boys. Any like the one on the right, with no color on their comb or wattles are probably pullets. I thought all of my girls were cockerels until they started laying eggs! They're pretty!
