    In the 1st & 2nd pic I think she's a Deleware, am I right?

    Is this a white leghorn in the next pic?

    Thanks! But how can you tell the difference between a white rock or leghorn? Need to be educated [​IMG]

    Leghorns are also smaller in overall size, they're a light mediterranian breed. Often they are quite flighty and full of energy.

    Thank you all for your replies, after reading all the replies I went outside and rechecked my birds....dummy me has 4 brown leghorns
    and the white leghorn question was just dumb [​IMG] if I were paying close enough attention I would have seen this. BTW these birds were a late January 09 hatch, and I noticed some are now gaining waddles [​IMG]
