Need better lighted pics. But from what i can tell thats not a leghorn, looks more like a production red maybe?
I'm also thinking it looks red. Leaning toward male but who knows this early.
I did get 27 others that were production reds and this one is way darker. The person I bought them from said they were hatched (darker one) and bought (production reds) for a science fair project.
The lighter ones look like Red sex-link roosters and the darker one is a Production Red.
Oh I hope not, they would all be going to the processor then. Also the poor kid that did the science fair project will have bad data.
They look like Red Sex Link pullets to me, roosters usually have much more white. The first girl in your photo looks like a Production Red pullet (aka a red bird that can be feather sexed at birth, so some would refer to these also as sex links). Keep an eye on the red sex links and make sure their combs stay nice and tiny.
There are some that have a bit of red in their comb, which is fine I will need to fill some processing orders. Also they are a bit more aggressive. I'll see if I can't get some better pictures today.
Here is the brown one, hopefully these pictures help out more.
I think this one is a production red roo seems like I have about 15 of these.
I think this one is a female production red, I have a lot less of these
I am not sure on the gender but would agree that it does not look like a brown leghorn. Maybe a mix? The coloring of the feathers and legs seem off. In case it helps, this a hatchery quality brown leghorn hen at 3 and 6 months. Good luck! I hope they are girls.
