    Hi there all! I am new to raising chicks so I am hoping for some feedback. I got this lil chick about a week ago from my local feed store. I was told it is a white leghorn pullet. The crown on this lil chick is more pronounced then that of my other chicks. This chick is 2 weeks old. While I know it is still very early to be certain of the sex, can anyone offer me some feedback? Thanks in advance![​IMG]

    Welcome to BYC!
    It is too early yet to determine gender. The combs on white leghorns tend to develop quite rapidly, in pullets as well as cockerels -- more than size of the comb the color of the comb is what I consider and in your bird it is still a nice pale comb, if it starts to pink up(and/or you see wattle development that is also pinking up) before about 12/14 weeks that is when to be concerned.
