Hey all, I have this beautiful little one that I am so unsure of gender! It is supposed to be a she, but I know sexing isn't accurate. As I haven't dealt with this breed before, it may just be qhick growth or newbie knowledge! Rose comb brown leghorn, 3 months old. All thoughts are much apprieciated!

that's a cockerel.

Brown Leghorns are easily sexed by color. The easiest place to tell is the breast feathers. Males have black breasts like your boy. Females have salmon/reddish brown breasts.
