    This is Hunter109's hen and we can't determine if she's a light brown leghorn or game hen??? [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    She's really timid when you try and get around her, the guy he got her and the chicks from, had them free ranging.

    Not a Leghorn, they have very large single combs. This hen is a brown Leghorn, although not a light brown Leghorn.

    She's most definitely not black, her feathers are brown--actually, the photo above is a very good representation of her color. She's just a dark brown Leghorn instead of a light brown Leghorn. [​IMG]
