    Leghorns are hard, because they have big combs anyway. Wait a few weeks, the jury is still out over here

    Could go either way. I had a leghorn with a huge comb at 4 weeks. was a girl. [​IMG] I'll see if I can find the picture..

    If comb starts getting red in a few weeks, it's probably a boy, otherwise could still be a girl.

    I see this thread was many years ago, but just curious what the chick turned out being? I have two 2-week old pullets that have much larger combs than my seven other various chicks. I'm hoping it's a leghorn thing
