Is this White Leghorn a pullet or cockerel?

    [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]Hi again! My sister has a 2 week old White Leghorn chick who is maturing faster... and we aren't sure if it's just the breed or if it's a rooster. The 2nd chick is the same age, different breed. Thought we could do a comparison.[​IMG] [​IMG][/IMG]

  2. How old are they? It is probably too young to tell.

    2 weeks is much too young to tell. White leghorns of both genders grow big combs fast.
