    Hmmmmmmm, I would have to say a roo. What breed is it?
     
  3. Well, here is the mystery... I purchased 25 rare and exotic hens and also purchased some Pearl White Leghorns hens from McMurray... A bunch arrived DOA...

    This one looks like a Pearl, but if it is, it was sexed as a female. If this is a roo, then it should be the bonus rare and exotic thrown in when you purchase 24.

    Hmm...maybe its one of those "rare" sexing mistakes? It looks like the other white ones you have, and compared to them I'd guess its a roo. But I couldn't tell you what breed. However, if I had to guess I'd say its a Leghorn roo. If he is, you should name him FogHorn! LOL [​IMG]

    I looked at all the 'white' chicks at McMurray. Yours most fits a Leghorn roo, IMO.

    They do say they are only 99% correct on sexing, I also ended up having a sexing mistake on one of my Buff Orps but he turned out to be a welcomed adition to my flock even though I didn't intend on him in the first place.
