    this lovely little chicken is about 3 months old. and a white egg layer. now i'm new to white layers and the hen i have i would swear was a roo so I can't for sure say if he or she.

    It's a roo and it's got white earlobes but otherwise it doesn't look like a brown leghorn to me. Maybe something gamey, although it's not quite light enough. I'm guessing a mix.

    bought with a few other chicks at animal sale. think he got them from hatchery though. i'm thinking roo too. but suppose to be a dark cornish.

    It's a rooster for sure (you'll never see a hen that color).

    With it's single comb and white earlobes it's for sure not a purebred Dark Cornish.
