    Here are four pictures of my brown leghorn. I got 6 hen chicks in April. 4 of the 6 are laying and have been for weeks. My araucana has a crooked beak and I don't know if she'll lay. But I haven't had any white eggs from my leghorn, she's totally slacking in that department. She's not a he is she? She's gotten mouthy in the last week or so, but no cock a doddle dooing is going on.

    100% a hen. Those noise she's making means that she's about to give you a nice white egg [​IMG]

    Looks just like my Brown Leghorn hen. Brown Leghorn Roosters are a completely different color and the comb stands up more.

    Great. Thanks. The rooster thought occured to me today as I was getting the eggs out of the nexting boxes and she seemed to be yelling at me, so I thought maybe. And her butt feathers stick out more than my others. But I guess that's a breed thing. My others are an orphington, aracauna, brahma, barred rock and an australorp. Plus, her comb came in earlier than my other hens and no eggs made me concerned.
