    I am pretty sure the white Leghorn is a roo but the other chick one two and also roo or hen they are four weeks old
    And it is a huge chick bigger then the what looks like a sex link even tho same age and fatter then the roosters

    I think those are Cornish meat chickens.
    Here are a some pics of my leghorn cockerels at that age. Notice they are lean and not bulky like yours and the size of the combs. IMG_4378.JPG

    So I definitely have the white Leghorn hens to a neighbor and kept the other white ones which are extremely heavy

    I don't think you have leghorn. I think their Cornish X like alleys chicks said

    Definitely thought something was different with these three compared to the much smaller white chicks my neighbor took to raise
    But I'm hoping one is a hen I really like the huge chickens they seem fun and easier to catch when out I'm hoping my black chick is a jersey giant

    Could you get a better picture? From the pictures they look to small to be Cornish crosses, they maybe White Plymouth Rocks.

    Here they are next to mutt chicks and possibly jersey giant and all of them are the same age about 30-31 days old

    Especially the one which is possible more of a hen is always first for food and those three are always fighting for top pecking order they definitely eat alot and always eat first then it's the black chick the three brown are always last and definitely don't eat as much
