Took this one on as a chick. Now growing up and looking roo-ish. Super flighty skinny but gets along well with other girls in the flock. Oh, I little clumsy. Not the most graceful bird.

You have a Light-Brown Leghorn pullet. You should soon be getting lots of nice large white eggs!

Ah-ha!!! I'm new to raising chickens. I've got a buff Orpington and a Silver laced Wyandotte that have been laying for a month or more. Then the three little ones are Golden Laced Wyandotte, Rhode Island Red and this gal. I didn't think I had any white layers but last week I got two very small white eggs and was confused. Mystery solved!! Thanks a bunch.

Yeah, those big ol combs are easy to fool newbies! If you google brown leghorn roosters, you can see the difference in color that makes them easy to sex once you know what you have.

Plus, as a rule, any bird with a floppy comb is a hen. Roosters' combs stand up tall and proud.
