    Looks like a leghorn, I think 'pullet'. Post more pictures as she gets older, I so wanna see!

    I'm leaning toward pullet, probably a White Leghorn. [​IMG]

    Glad to hear signs are pointing to pullet at least.

    I thought leghorn as well, but her leg color seems pale. Maybe that will change as she gets older. (may have been hoping Orpington)

    Quote:she should be just about feathered out completely around 6 weeks but she might be a slow grower, which does happen. [​IMG]

    Thanks, she is a very slow grower. She's still really small but seems to be feathering out finally.
