    In July my wife and I decided to get some chicks and we have loved them. but there is a hen that doesnt look like a brown leghorn but that is what the feed store says she was. the other two hens look like every google image of a brown leghorn that i have ever found. But i cant find any variation in coloring. the other leghorns have yellow legs this hen has grey legs. and the other leghorns have a littel patch of white close to their waddles and this hen does not. her coloring in very close to the americauna hen in the background of the picture buth this hen has no earmuffs at all. They are now about 18 to 19 weeks old
    The breeds they were selling at the feedstor at the time were

    Barred rock
    Rhode Island Red
    Golden sex-link
    Brown leghorn

    Is she a brown leghorn with a different coloration or did i get another breed? Either way I will be happy, I just want to know what she is.

    she is on the lower left.

    here is a shot of her back. that is the americauna next to her that shares a similar coloration.
    this pic is a little far away but she is on the left there.

    That looks like an Easter Egger to me, but I am not sure. I have had EEs with no muffs.
