    Trying to reduce the number of chickens before winter comes and I am not sure about this one. Is he a he or a she?

    It's a leghorn I think. Thanks for your help.

    I got him at the end of June so "he" is about five and a half months old.

    Is it a Leghorn?

    Quote:I would say no only because Leghorns have single combs an he doesnt look like he has a single comb in the pictures.

    roo, too meaty for a leghorn
    There would be no doubt about comb if it was leghorn
    the big single comb develops earlier
