    Hi i have 2 leghorns the first i have ever owned in the pics below they are 7 weeks 3 days they have bigger combs than the rest there age and they do not have any waddles at all and the combs are very pale and almost white i will try to post some better pics tomorrow they were very fast and all pictures come out blurry now they are 10 weeks 4 days old. Are they roos or can they actually be pullets. I bought them from mypetchickens and i ordered all 8 pullets. I hope they are pullets. Hope someone can help. I will post more pics tomorrow if possiable.

    I think pullets. They'd be bigger and redder on the boys.

    Leghorns do have bigger combs, and will always have bigger combs than other breeds. Even the girls!

    I'm thinking girls also. White leghorns have huge combs, look at some pics of mature hens, they're combs are bigger than roos of other breeds. I think if they were boys they'd be redder already, plus they have slender legs and just look girly to me.

    They are pullets. At this age, cockerels would have more well developed combs.

    Agreed, female

    By 7 weeks boys stand out like a sore thumb.
