Brown Leghorn or Game hen, I'm confused!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is Hunter109's hen and we can't determine if she's a light brown leghorn or game hen??? barnie.gif  idunno.gifjakes hen.jpegjakes hen2.jpeg

She's really timid when you try and get around her, the guy he got her and the chicks from, had them free ranging.

Not a Leghorn, they have very large single combs. This hen is a brown Leghorn, although not a light brown Leghorn.

The chickens are sold! We sold off 150 roosters, hens, cockerels, and pullets and are down to 10 birds. Three ISA Brown, one Amberlink, one blue copper Marans, four black copper Marans and one blue Ameraucana rooster.

She's most definitely not black, her feathers are brown--actually, the photo above is a very good representation of her color. She's just a dark brown Leghorn instead of a light brown Leghorn. smile.png

And yet, she's not black.

 

Read the bit here about the dark brown variety: http://www.the-coop.org/leghorn/history.html
