    Thats what i was afraid of... lol.



    Answer this for me. #2 and 3 are the same age from the same "clutch" but #3 has alot more of a comb. #2 has a comb that looks really hen like, but the feathers look very Roo. Are the tail feathers what tell you hes a roo?

    #3 is a straight comb or single comb
    #2 is a rose comb or pea comb

    Sorry you have so many roos. [​IMG] I had 3 out of 5 "sexed pullets" (UH....SURE) from the feed store turn out roos last year. But hey, at least you have a brown leghorn!!! Those girls are WONDERFUL [​IMG]

    Quote:One man... that stinks. My sexed pullets have all turned out to be hens. The brown leg horn was one fo them. We got like 6. I have other hens.. Im just sure their all hens cause they are laying. [​IMG]


    What color do brown leg horns lay? White right? Dont think shes laying. What other breeds lay green? American I have is laying the green, but I think I have one more laying green. Hmm?


    Could one of these be having green? Them or two other hens I got at the same time are laying almost an off white egg.

    Yes, the Leghorn will lay white. EE's can look so very different you could easily have one and not realize that is what it is....until it lays green eggs. [​IMG] Those look like Silver Laced Wyandottes in the pic.
