black and white chicken

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

My Friend ordered five Exchequer Leghorns from a hatchery, I think it was Ideal.
When they were grown it turned out only one is a Ex Leghorn. The other four are the same color, black and white speckled but are smaller, not flighty, have pinkish white legs, and lay a smaller white egg.


I hope to get pictures but does anybody have a idea what they could be?

The black and white should be the Exchequer Leghorns,  they are mottled.  As far as the small eggs go, have they just started laying?  If so they probably will get bigger in their eggs.  Leghorns are small chickens anyway, not as small as a bantam though.

They should be all leghorns, shouldn't they? Maybe one is a roo, that's why it could be bigger.....? cool

Only one is a Exchequer, the 4 others aren't. I have Exchequers. The one looks like mine the four others don't.
I have no idea what the others are. I have never seen that type of chicken before, not even pictures.
I'll try and get a photo.

No she has had Anconas and these are smaller.
It was too late to get a picture today, hopefully I can get one in a day or two.
