    Hi, I'm new to the chicken world. Right now I have 4 Leghorns and 1 Golden Seabright. Not sure if this a female not... This was an unsexed. The leghorns were pullets.

    Welcome to BYC!

    How old is the bird in this photo? It looks to be a pullet, but age had a lot to do with assessing what is seen

    Hope the leghorns won't gang up on her, Sebrights are very small.

    I've noticed that she, for some reason, seems to be the boss. She is always bossing them around, pushing them away from the feeder from her spot on the ground.
