    This one has furry legs and I have no clue if it is a hen or not. It is 11 weeks old.

    This one I think is a leghorn? Also no clue on sex either. This one is also 11 weeks old.

    You might get more replies if you posted this under "What Breed or Gender is this?" Just a helpful opinion. To answer your question though, number one is a boy, and number two is a girl. Hope that helps!

    Some sort of Brahma mix and a leghorn. They look like hens, but you never can tell.

    So when do the spurs begin to show? How soon will I know if they are roosters??

    Quote:You'll see more pronounced wattles and combs long before you see spurs. Those really take some time. On average, a year or more for any appreciable growth. [​IMG]

    As to possible breeds, it looks like there is either golden Brahma or maybe speckled Sussex in there someplace on the brownish one. Most likely a cross breed. Where did you get them? Did you hatch them yourself?

    Thanks for the response! I got them from the local feed store, they order from Privett. I guess if they crow I will know!
