    I got it as straight run at co-op. He/she is is 14 weeks old. It used to be really friendly and nice but now h/s has seemed to be getting flightly and it fights a lot with the other leghorns. Any ideas on gender? Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    Seems pullet-y enough, I mean a side view would very much help in look for the rooster feathers

    That is most certainly a pullet.

    Okay, I'm getting a lot of 'pullets'! Thanks for the answers! Her comb is never usually that red (its weird, her comb is very bright red at some points of the day and at other times its orange) Anyway, I am pretty certain she's a pullet now. [​IMG]

    Many environmental factors can affect the color and texture of the comb/wattle even the amount of water they have been drinking can have some effect. Does look like pullet to me with a diminutive and feminine set of wattles.
