This one is large with thick legs! Another rooster or a big hen? We just had to give the other rooster away today, now I’m worried about this one! 😢 The one on the very right of the picture...

The two on the right look like Easter Eggers especially if those are puffy cheeks I see in the pic. If your suspected cockerel has a prominent three row pea comb that’s another ‘indication’ that he is a cockerel. If it starts getting bigger and redder quicker than the other chick, you may have another cockerel. EEs can be tricky so you’ll need to wait a few more weeks to be sure.

Thank you! I thought the store said they were Leghorns 🤷🏼‍♀️ I bet the girl working didn’t know and guessed... that’s okay but the heartache is having to give the roosters away, they said all pullets 🤦🏼‍♀️

We can’t... ordinances 😡
Ok, but you have a few more weeks before they start crowing. You have plenty of time to determine the sex before that.

I just called them EEs because they appear to have muffs and maybe a beard but I can’t tell for sure from the pic. Do they? With green legs, they aren’t leghorns.
