    Got as a hatchling from McMurray eggs that were ordered by a local school. I can't figure out breed! I had a guess of columbian Wyandotte, but there is no black at all. All feathers are white! Of course, he's the friendliest if the suspected boys!

    I was just going to ask if the leghorn have rose combs sometimes. :) Then again, I have a SLW with a single comb, so I guess anything can happen!

    Thank you! I'll go look at the white wyandotte. He does look similar in comb/body shape to the SLW.

    yes they can have the rose comb but it is a specific leghorn(rose comb leghorn), not just any leghorn can have it like (white leghorn, brown leghorn, exchequer leghorn) these all have a straight comb. I hope I clarified[​IMG]

    Rose Combed Brown Leghorns are out there. Being bred and shown. Pretty sure they are even APA excepted.
