    How do you tell these two barred breeds apart before they lay eggs? I think that both have yellow legs and feet, but I cannot find good descriptions or photos to gather distinguishing characteristics aside from eggs. Photos appreciated. Thanks!

    Rocks have reddish earlobes and Leghorns will have white. Leghorns are also more lightweight and streamlined than Rocks.
