    I was real good last year and Santa brought me Three leghorns too. What say the mighty BYC forum - - - do you see any potential roos?

    I think one roo in the front. Other two possible pullets. I could be wrong though. I agree it is kinda early.

    Those just don't look like Leghorns to me. Just my 0.2 though

    I think it's a bit early to tell, but my Leghorns always had a little bit tallish combs like that, thing was they didn't get any bigger or pinker and the roo's did, so probably just play the waiting game a bit longer!

    Yeah . we could tell he was a rooster at two days old. He acted like one. He only got one waddle, as you can see. It probably would have grown in but he died at like seven weeks.
