    Can you post a picture of the chick standing on its own?

    Flighty little thing! I kept getting blurred pics.
    I also had to use " mono" black/white setting bc of red brooder light.

    The sign at TSC said Blue leghorn. Is that the same as a Silver Leghorn?

    Never heard of a blue leghorn before, can you post a colored pic with the chick standing sideways so we can see the profile? Color is important, feather color, leg color, the body shape...keep that in mind when taking pictures, I know photographing a flighty chick is difficult but we need better pictures.

    Side view. I also have another pic I'd like to submit. It looks like it has a little tiny bump on each leg. I'm pointing at on of them. Thank you for your help! :)

    It's not blue. If it's a Leghorn, it is a Brown Leghorn. It does look like one to me.

    Have a look at the tiny bump on its leg. I think you can enlarge my pic by clicking on it.
