    My grandparents gifted me three chickens: two americanas already laying and one leghorn who is supposed to begin laying in one month. However, I've noticed the leghorn has begun crowing. This makes me nervous, as we already have an accidental rooster (though he's a Dollie and I knew he couldn't be sexed when we got him as a chick). I would appreciate anyone who could help me identify this chicken's sex! [​IMG]

    That is an EE cockerel. No doubt - 100% male.

    That isn't not an Easter egger. It is a LEGHORN. Just to clarify. I'm not sure about the sex.

    It's male, and definitely NOT a leghorn. Leghorns don't have beards, muffs or pea combs. And wrong body type.
