    Hi I have 2 five week old Legbars and I was wondering if anyone can give an indication as to whether they think these are hens or roosters. I'm a bit worried as I think I have one of each [​IMG][​IMG]

    Both are Cockerels (a female of the Black Breasted Red or Partridge variety shouldn't have black in the chest, or blotches on their back), and they don't appear to be Legbars. Body type is a bit thick, and I don't see the barring.

    I did have my doubts about them being Legbars but that's what she told us. One of them I thought is because of the pinker comb than the other but it makes sense as they're both so similar
