    This is my Leghorn. I'm not sure if a boy or girl. I know all leghorns have a comb at a young age. Does anyone know how to tell the gender of a young leghorn?

    That's a pretty big, fleshy comb for less than 3 weeks, so I would say cockerel.

    I'm leaning towards cockerel, but it is to young to say for sure. Why don't you post again in a couple of weeks to confirm.
