    This is Luna. She's the largest in the bunch. We've been hearing this noise for about a week now. Officially a rooster?

    Yep, that's a little cockerel - and the most adorable crowing I've ever heard :)

    I have 6 white Leghorns pullets...so they said. I have a suspicion that 2, possibly 3, are roosters. 4 months old and all of a sudden they are getting larger cones and warblers than the others.[​IMG]
     
  4. Leghorn hens have bigger combs and wattles. Yours look like pullets. They mature at different rates. Possibly your bigger redder combed ladies are going to start laying soon.

    Cute chicks, but get them OUT of the house! No way should they be in the kitchen, especially!!! Mary
