    HI, I have this chicken, I don't remember ever even getting it and I have records of my chickens. Anyway, can somebody please identify breed and gender. I know the pic isn't the greatest my ds took it. Thank you!

    Do you mean the black and red one with the white earlobe? Looks exactly like my rosecomb brown leghorn rooster, at least from that distance. Its a rooster for sure, can't be 100% on breed though, need a few closer up shots for that.

    Well isn't that interesting because I never purchased leghorn chicks. He seems friendly enough but I have a Buttercup roo that rules the roost. Is yours friendly? Thank you for answering this post.

    I'd also think he's a brown leghorn. They are pretty good at flying... maybe he saw greener grass in your coop?

    I found a nice home for him, he will be the only rooster to their 16 females. However, when I went to put him in the cage he made horrible clucking hen sounds. He is pretty but I want to make sure he is a he before I say good-bye.

    Here is one more pic.

    LOL, do you see what one small typo can do. [​IMG] That is not a mad face, but an embarrassed one. [​IMG]
