    I have an ad on Craigslist to find homes for my roos. I have had several people question whether these are roos or not. I am sure these are roosters, but can I be wrong?!
    They are leghorns, about 8 weeks old.
    I have this picture up:

    Could the one without a head LOL be a girl according to its tail? I like to look @ the tails myself. ???

    If they aren't roos then I'm selling a duo of two pullets! lol.


    My vote is roos. The combs give it away.

    Quote:Thank you. I know that leghorns have larger combs, but compaired to the pullet they are huge. Unless the pullet is-by chance-some other breed or something.
    I guess I could wait and see if they crow or lay eggs but by that point it may be a little late as they will not behave anymore (I suspect I have 1 girl and 4 boys).

    [​IMG] I meant the one in the first pic where you can't see the head because that roo's butt's in the way! LOL The 2 WITH heads in that pic are certainly lil boys, I'd say, but the tail on Headless there looks girlish, looks like may have slimmer legs too?, but no combs to be seen...LOL
