Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by lclubb37, Oct 7, 2016.
While you didn't include age, it appears this bird is in the 3-4 week range - at this point it is too soon to tell as the chick is not of a color pattern where gender would be apparent based on the plumage that is present. You also did not include breed - the chick appears to likely be a leghorn, which would make the seemingly advanced comb development for age a non-issue, especially given that it is pale rather than pink, but confirming breed would be key in assessing what *can* be seen at this point.
The best option for you is to wait another 3+ weeks and post again with the bird's breed and age at the time of the photo being posted. When you do re-post, do so with a photo that shows the bird from the side, in full body profile - photos with hands holding the bird and/or taken from odd angles, such as from above in the middle photo, do not show the bird in the best angles to be assessed for gender.
Yes, this is a leghorn and it is almost 4 weeks old. I'm thinking its a roo because it's comb is bigger and more pointy than my other leghorn and has been since I brought them home. It's hard waiting to figure it out but I will post more pics and better pics in a few weeks. Thanks so much
Here are a few more pics. And the brown one, is it a brown leghorn?
Both white leghorns in mu opinion are cockerels and answered brown leghorn in your other thread!
If they are roosters, I'm gonna have to get rid of them. . Gonna give them a few more weeks and see how they mature. I'll post more pics then.
Leghorns are quick to mature and have large combs. Judging by the fact that the comb hasn't reddened yet, I'd say pullet (so far, it's still a little young to tell).

This white leghorn is 5 weeks old. Can you tell if it's a pullet?
