    Hello I can't tell if the white leghorns are roosters.. I'm hoping that they are hens. I can tell the barredrock(sp?) is a rooster but is the barredrock that is by itself a hen? It is not as big as the other roos and I bought them all at the same time. Thanks any help is appreciated. Beverly

    Mu guess is, the lighter colored BR in the last pic is a roo, the other BR's are hens, and I believe all the leghorns are hens as well. BR roos are lighter and have little to no black on the legs; then hens will have black "wash" on the fronts of the legs and feet. It would help if you gave age, and made better pics of legs and saddle and hackle areas on the leghorns.
