    My daughter brought these two home from a hatching project in school, her teacher thought they were hens, I'm not so sure! I think I've got both roos, and a white leghorn and a rose combed brown leghorn?

    What do you think?

    The brown one looks like an easter egger rooster. The white one may be a leghorn cross, could you get a full body photo of it?

    I am still thinking leghorn, and it's probably a pullet. Do you know how old they are?

    Both are definitely roosters. The brownish one is an Easter Egger, and the white one appears to be a white leghorn.

    Agree, looks like a pretty EE roo and a leghorn pullet. Smart chickens, who needs a coop when you can live in the house, I take it this is how you wind up with house chickens?

    What makes you think the leghorn is a rooster? The pullets of this breed do get large red combs and wattles when quite young.

    We had a Bl. Australorp that got herself caught in a fence, so we brought her in the house (dining room LOL) to heal, we put her back with the flock and she was accepted no problem, but now at bedtime instead of going to her own space, she comes to the door begging and pecking to come inside. hey are no dummies!

    I see a EE cockerel and a white leghorn pullet. Nothing about the leghorn says rooster so far. They get big red combs and wattles at a young age and the body shape looks female. :)
