    We got Ruby first and as she was growing up, her pen mates all got big and moved outside-but Ruby stayed so little I thought she had a genetic problem because I bought her as a Brown Leghorn. But I saw some another post on BYC about the exact same thing and she was from my same area turns out we bought our chicks at the same place. Her consensus was that they are OEGB. What do you all think?? We then a few weeks later got Darcie, because Ruby was so small still and everyone she grew up with would soon be leaving and i wanted to get her a friend.

    Here is Darcie as baby chick, Ruby looked the same-she is the one with brown wings and long "eyeliner"


    Now Darcie at 6 weeks


    This is Ruby, our other "leghorn" currently age 10 weeks.

    It looks like a brown leghorn to me.
