    Hello everyone!

    I'm new to chickens, but I've managed to keep one alive for 8 weeks so far! I'm trying to figure out what kind of chicken and gender I have. Doing a little digging, my chicken looks like White Leghorn or White Rock, but I'm not the expert.

    Also, any ideas on the gender?

    Are the legs pink or yellow? If the legs are yellow it's a Delaware. If the legs are pink it's a Light Sussex. It looks like a cockerel to me, pullets combs don't turn that red until they are ready to lay, 5-6 months.

    The feet are indeed yellow.

    This is my light Sussex pullet. She is almost 3 months old. She was sold to me as a Delaware.
