    Hi i ordered 10 brown leghorn hens from hoovers hatchery, i received 12 i think i may have gotten a rooster mainly because one is slightly bigger than the rest and has a larger comb already. IMG_0823.JPG IMG_0824.JPG

    It is probably a bit early,
    I don't want to mislead you...
    But I think you have a rooster.
    I hope this is helpful!

    They are beautiful birds!
