    I have 2 of these, they are very sweet. I think they are roosters but am still very unsure of the breed,

    Relatively certain that it's a light brown leghorn pullet.

    Quote:Yes you are right about the age. I thought they were roosters because of their combs. I am happy to finally find out what they are and doubly happy to know they are pullets.

    Yep, brown leghorns. I have whites about the same age and they are 100% all pullets. They all have combs and waddles like that. It just runs in the breed.

    [​IMG] I have 25 8 week old pullets- all look the same as that one. If it were a rooster the comb would already be red and it would have red wattles. All leghorns have big combs
