    Agreed White Leghorn, but the legs don't seem very yellow.

    White Leghorn and probably older with leg washout from laying.

    I thought if it were a white leghorn then it's comb would be bigger and it looks a little too fat to be a leghorn but maybe that's just the angle. Thanks a bunch

    I agree she's a bit thick for a Leghorn. Makes me wonder how old she is? But the white earlobes kind of tell the tale.

    I guess she could be a mix. The white color is dominant, and the white earlobes seem to be partially dominant. She could be mixed with something heavier. What color egg does she lay? If it's white-white, she's probably a pure Leghorn. If it's off white, cream, tan, etc....she's a mix.

    I'm not sure what color egg. Like I said she's not mine I was just asking for someone else and I know they just got the chicken so she probably won't be laying for a few more days until she gets comfortable and relaxed

    I thought white leghorn hens always have a floppy comb.
