    I posted pictures of 4 white leghorns here a few weeks ago. We were told they were 3 pullets and one rooster. After posting pictures here Everyone guessed they were all pullets. I have updated pics. Still think they are all pullets or is this one for sure a roo? [​IMG]

    Can you someone please tell me why they think this one is a pullet? The lady we got them from said this one was a cockerel. "He" hasn't had a tail since we got "him". Now that the tail feathers are coming in, they are different than the other pullets and the feathers are pointing downwards.

    Pullets, although the one on the right of the first picture has an awfully long comb...

    They were suppose to be 3 months and 2 weeks when we got them. We have had them about a month or more. The one on the right with the really bright red comb actually started to flop to the side, so pretty sure it's a pullet. The one to the left with few tail feathers was the one we were told was a cockerel. "She" had no tail at all when we got "him". I will post the picture I posted a month ago from when we first got them.

    those are all pullets.

    Leghorns mature early, males included. Males at this age would have huge, very red combs, and obvious saddle feathers.
