    Was thinking she may be a leg horn until the black spots started showing. Not alot of black, just a streak here and there. Any ideas what breed she could be? [​IMG]

    She could also be a White Plymouth Rock.

    You'll need to wait to see what the black is doing...if it is transitory or markings.

    You could have a Delaware, or even a Light Sussex, but you won't know until the adult feathers come in better. (I doubt either of those breeds as the black is not really coming in on the wing trim).

    Occasionally a White Rock can have some streaking as few are pure white based since the Barred line is so popular...White Rock white tends to be dominant which covers barring, but sometimes streaking comes in.

    Not typical of a White Leghorn to show any black streaking.

    Wait and see what's going on.
