    When I first got these girls, one looked a little weird. I was told by most here that judging by the pictures I posted, one was a rooster. Well, here they are now and around 16 weeks old. Do any of these look like a rooster??

    They all look like pullets to me. Beautiful birds!

    No, not anymore. To me they all look like pullets now. How old are they?
    If there's a cockerel in there I'm missing it lol. Maybe she was just a really quick developing girl :D

    You have nice looking hens. Red leghorns are very funny birds. They like to sing and wander outside the flock. They are also very consistent layers. Good luck with your red ladies.

    They are pullets.
    Many confuse gender with big combed breeds

    I agree, pullets. Guessing early is fun, and not always right. Glad they are all girls!
