    It's definitely a SHE!!!! I watched her lay an egg lol [​IMG]


    So I thought I had all girls - but I'm not so sure...

    I only had one light brown leghorn live out of 4 so I don't have anything to compare to. It is 22 weeks old and it doesn't crow.

    Is this a roo???:|

    I have no idea what it is, but the two opposite answers to your question make me feel better-- hubby and I were just looking at our flock today saying "that one might be a rooster.. but maybe not....."
    LOL-- good luck- hope you find your answer [​IMG]

    Nope, I'm going with rooster-red on this one, roo.
    The pic is too dark to see the saddle feathers well, but I do believe I see some dipping down below the wing. They wouldn't be dipping that low on a hen.

    I say hen. Leghorns can have some BIG red combs, even for hens.
