    I was given two "fancy chickens" and from the research I've done, they appear to be Sultans (they are white and have 5 toes). Is that what they look like to y'all, how old do you think they are and what gender do they appear to be?

    Thank you so much for your help! I am all new to this chicken world!

    The first one kind of looks like a male, the second female.

    and @chefvayda, that chicken looks like a cockerel. VERY red comb, how old is it?

    If I did this right I need to know what gender my leghorn is. Suppose to be a hen. Legs are very thick and she is humming. Only 7 weeks old

    It is definitely a rooster, with that big comb and thick legs at only 7 wks.
    @Stuckinlove
    I don't know much about telling Sultan gender, but the second one seems to look a little roosterish. I'm not sure though, so I could easily be wrong

    Thank you for responding! I hope some one can tell me more about Sultans!
