I would really like to know what gender my leghorn is?
Small wattles= hen
large comb= roo
Does it have spur buds?
I kind of vote pullet, it looks feminine
All chicks have spur buds, so that doesn't help determine gender. I'm guessing rooster since it's comb is so red at this age.
How old is it? I'm leaning toward roo too since it still appears to be really young and that is a heckuva lotta red comb.
I don't know it's age since I bought it from my local feed store.
none of this really matters when it is a leghorn...all chicks have spur buds and some hens (mainly games) even grow spurs
as for this one...it still looks like it has chick fuzz, the comb is nice and red already and the wattles are also nice and red for such a young age i am leaning towards a cockerel for this leghorn
definetly a roostey
If my leghorn turns out to be a cockeral (rooster) I'll be sure that it gets a girl of it's kind.
