    See attached pics of my 8 week old White Leghorn and provide your input as to what you think the sex is. I know what I asked for but behavior is making me wonder. Poll just for fun below!


    THANKS!

    Thanks everyone. Can't have a rooster so we found a home for him at an urban farm in Detroit. Looks like he will have a fruitful life makin hens happy. With ducks, goats, and turkeys to keep him company.
