Rose comb brown leghorns

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Anyone have a picture of a rose comb brown leghorn.  I picked up at TS three chicks which I thought were EE's, they had the muff and the coloring, but yellow legs.  After doing some research I noted that they all had rose combs and their legs are still yellow at 4 weeks.  After more searching I believe I have rose comb brown leghorns.  Don't have a picture, can't find the connection from camera to computer.  UGH......

Leghorns don't have muffs.   Rose comb brown leghorns are identical to single combed ones just comb difference.

I have 2 of them just 6 weeks old! I've posted about them before and haven't gotten much responce. So far, I'm not sure how I feel about the breed. They are real skittish and scared of me and it really doesn't matter how much I hold them. I hear they are flighty, I'm making a seprate coop just for them, but I here they are great egg layers of white eggs-so that's a plus. I took these pictures of them today, I hope it helps! They are Gorgeous birds, aren't they?

They were a week or so old in this pic.

I don't think leghorns come in rose comb?  All the photos posted show single combs.

These definitely have muffs and look exactly like my EE with the exception of rose comb and yellow legs.  I must have some type of mutant chicken  ( :   Will try and get a picture.

I've had one rosecomb brown leghorn in the past, and she looked just like the single-combed one pictured above, except with a rose comb.  Very pretty, very shy.  Never any sign of a muff.

Thanks for all the replies.  I am now rethinking this and think maybe I have some type of game birds.  These are actually very friendly and love to be held.
