I got them together on the same day when they were chicks. I just don't understand how one developed so different. And with the help of the forum we determined them both females!

Some hens just have greater sex characteristics than others. IME, the ones with a fuller comb and wattle for their breed type are better layers and the others, not so much.

You'll have to tell us how it goes for your girls as time goes along. Good looking leghorns and great pics, BTW!

The one with the larger comb has probably started laying and the other hasn't done so quite yet. Just like people, chickens mature at slightly different rates. They'll probably look the same in another month.
