    The austra white, the tail feathers are making me think she may be a he. 12 weeks old. Any thoughts? This is our first chick and chicken experience.

    The white bird is female. And I think she's a Leghorn, not an Australorp. She'll likely be your first layer, with nice large white eggs.

    Everyone else looks female, from what I can see of the pic.

    They weren't selling leghorns when I got her, but you never know. She was bright yellow when we got her.

    I figured out why she looks like a leghorn, she's an austra white. I double checked my records.
