Is this hen a Welsummer or Light Brown Leghorn?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

What do you think? Is this a Welsummer or a Light Brown Leghorn? This is a nice little 9 week old hen, and I have a Welsummer Roo the same age. She is lighter than the roo but hardly has a comb at all. Thanks for your help.

What color are her legs?

The Face and body type make me think she is a welsummer.

 

Do you have a pic of her full body that shows her tail too?

White earlobes would indicate a leghorn.... I am NOT seeing any white on her face photos.... That means WELSUMMER big_smile.png

I have thought about the earlobs too. But I am not sure at what age they turn white. Do you know?

Here are some new pictures. She is now over 12 weeks old. Still trying to figure out if she is a Welsummer or Leghorn. Her earlobes seem to be the same color as the skin on her face, pale pink. What age does white earlobes show up on a leghorn? Plus she has a tiny comb. I am hoping for Welsummer because I have a Welsummer roo boy. Here are the pictures of her face and body. What do you think?

I'm thinking welsummer. My leghorn girls had larger combs at this age. I don't remember when the earlobes became apparent, but I remember the comb vividly. You'll be able to tell us in the spring what color egg she lays!
