    I thought [​IMG] this was a roo..... then I saw a pic of a leghorn roo at ten weeks whick looked MUCH more roo-like. [​IMG]

    Then someone said it was a roo! It did not come from the same flock as the polish, It came from a 4-H project. The others looked like leghorns and RIRs.

    This - whatever it is - is 11 weeks old today! [​IMG]

    What IS it?

    On the other thread it was suggested that he is not a leghorn.... Now I am confused! What would a leghorn pullet look like at ten weeks? Does anyone have a pic?

    Whatever you do, do NOT let me confuse you![​IMG] I am really new to the wonderful world of chickens. I "thought" Prince Roo was a Leghorn, but my knowledge is VERY limited! [​IMG]

    My boy or Moms boy???

    My "boy" is with a girl who apparently is pretty clear that he's a boy and wants chicks NOW! He doesn't appear to know what he's supposed to do about it, so she's getting pretty rough with him! She's a month older and well... you know about those "older" women. LOL!

    I'd say hen if it's a Leghorn. My Leghorn roos had more developed combs that
    your bird by 6 weeks and most tried crowing by 8.

    That bird's leg size, posture, and girth make me think it's a cross of some sort.

    Looks like long saddle feathers & pointed hackle feathers to me. That along with the comb development suggests it's a male.

    It looks like my white leghorn pullets. My white leghorn roo has a very tall bright red comb and waddles
