    These are my big girls. A while back I posted and you guys told me that the WLH that has the bigger comb was a roo. I'm not so sure anymore, though. He doesn't crow. I thought they would start laying within a month, but then I noticed that they have no red at all on their combs or wattles. So how close to egg-laying age do they look? Are they all pullets?

    hard to tell from the pics but they appear to be all pullets to me, leghorn hens/pullets have large combs

    Yes, they all look to be female.

    You do let them out during the day correct?

    Quote:No. Their coop will be finished within a matter of days and until then they are not coming out. They are of the few that have not fallen ill in our flock. I do not want them coming in contact with our sick birds. Besides, every time they come out, it seems like one is killed.
    They have been let out recently, and their food and water is checked every day. It's just temporary while the coop is being finished.

    The one chicken with the redder and larger comb kinda looks rooish to me. It's hard to tell with them in a cage though.
