    I posted a question about these two before, but it didn't have anything to do with their breed/sex. They seem like they are molting???? Someone gave these two to me, they didn't know what they were either. I don't know if they got pecked and pecked or if they are molting. I need opinions on that. But I also would like to know if someone has a photo of a white leghorn rooster versus a white leghorn hen? And what do you think these are? Thanks![​IMG]

    I only had one of their photos, sorry!

    Could you post some pics where you can see them better? I think it would be impossible to ID them from that and there is only one (so no way to know the gender of both). Sorry, I don't have a clue on the feather issue.

    Yeah, I know. I'll get some photos of them online later this evening. They are looking better now. I don't know if the people who had them before just threw them in with some other chickens or what. I put them slowly into my leghorn pen yesterday evening. First I left them next door to the pen for two or three days/nights. They did alright. The hens had to get their pecking order straight, but nothing serious. A peck here, a peck there. Pics later.
