    Hi all-
    I'm new to the chicken world and need some help determining whether Roger is a hen or rooster. He hatched (in third grade agriculture class) at the end of April. I think he's a white leghorn?? If he's a rooster, we're going to have to find him a new home. I am so hoping for a hen, fingers crossed. He follows me around in the garden like a puppy and helps himself to cabbage.
    Thanks for the help!

    He's a rooster. Although the female leghorns also have very large combs, not so much at 10 - 12 weeks.

    Here's what my white leghorn roo looks like, mature:
