So one of my white leghorns has a bigger comb than my other birds. They are only a month old and they all run from my fingers when I wiggle them, except Big Comber who runs right up and pecks my fingers! Is she just more curious than the others or top of the pecking order? AAsaPleasansanswer

Sounds like it is a rooster, sadly. Roosters tend to be more brave and outgoing towards people and will do anything to protect their hens. Some roosters are loud and some as as quiet as a mouse. I would hate to have to see my roosters go!

MY "White Leghorn" Rooster is very quiet....as are my other 2 Roosters. The Buff Orpington Rooster is also quiet.
The BOSS Rooster, a Brown Leghorn, usually does a "Cock-a-doodle-do" in the Mornings....but he doesn't over-do it.
