    I got these pullets from MPC variety special. I thought they were all either the brown or white leghorns but as they are getting older, I am not so sure. Can anyone help identify these ones.

    I definitely have some leghorns both brown & white but there are some that the comb & wattles are not nearly as developed as the ones I am sure are leghorns. They are all the same age (14 weeks) but some of the combs are much smaller and not as red.

    Here is one of the white ones that I thought was a leghorn but the comb isn't very developed. The pic is blurry but you can see the comb pretty good.

    This is one of the browns standing with the same white as in the first photo

    There is a definite difference in the combs.

    Here is a different brown with a smaller comb also

    I only have about 2 of the whites with the larger comb like the brown but I couldn't get a good pic of them.

    The white bird with the smaller comb looks like a white rock to me. The questionable brown bird looks like a leghorn.
