    I was told that this is a cockerel almost 4 mos old now. The problem is, 'his' comb is drooping - which I have seen in older leghorn hens. So, is he a he or a she? -.-"[​IMG]

    The two behind are roosters but im not sure about yours. It kinda looks like a pullet to me but get some other opinions first

    Yup. I'm pretty sure the other two are roosters but this one got me confused.

    No saddle or sickle feather like the others. Very likely could be a female.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I'm about to send them all roosters of and now I'll hold out on this one. If it turns out to be a pullet or not I'll update y'all. :)

    I hope so. I was pretty convinced that she was a she. The gap in my mouth when I confirmed it was that chicken who just crowed lmao
