    Ok, I got this bird when I bought a batch of CX from the local hatchery. Obviously it's not a CX.... any ideas? It's a few days over 9 weeks old. Male? Female?

    9 weeks, I'd say white leghorn rooster. Look at those waddles and comb! [​IMG]

    I think it is an amber link roo based on the off color feathers he has.

    Looks like my "grey" leghorn hens, they are actually white. Their combs get very tall & flop over, they look similar to the roos just smaller.

    I say leghorn rooster. The off color is just dirt, and Amber links are much larger with more color and non white earlobes.

    Looks like a leghorn hen to me. I had one that looked exactly like that. I would think if it was a roo would have thicker legs.
