Hi all
I ended up with this one white leghorn chick and I’ve not had leghorns until now so not sure if this is a boy or a girl.
basing it on my other birds the feathers make me think it is a cockerel sadly. But wanted to check with folks with more knowledge in this breed please
It’s about 3 months old max

also I have this lovely pullet that no one knew the breed of? She makes really sweet trilling noises unlike any of my others and I’m not sure if that is her breed or she is just vocal? There was a suggestion it was a black leghorn but I don’t think she is or at least not a pure breed. These are the best pics but she is busy dust bathing , I think you can see her feather markings though, could she be barred rock ? She has yellow legs with no feathers so don’t think she’s a Marans.
