    What does everyone think... Is "foghorn leghorn" a he or she?! My DH & I both think it's a he, but we are new to this & I am sure we are probably wrong... [​IMG]

    Looks like an Easter Egger/mix breed Rooster. Leghorns have thinner body types, do not have beards, and would have a single comb. Your fellow appears to have a pea comb. The reason I am saying rooster is because of the thickness of the overall body, body stance, and the size of the comb.
