    I have no idea what breed my little girl is. She is 15 weeks old and began laying a couple of days ago. I received her with 5 other white Leghorns, but she lays light brown eggs and is not a white leghorn. Any help would be appreciated greatly. My wife and I are new to the backyard chicken world, but are having a wonderful time a it.

    Appreciate. We are new to the game and didn't have a clue. We have five other white leghorns and 2 RI reds. They're pretty easy to identify.

    looks like a buff leghorn. yellow legs and white ear lobes. unless the ears are red, they look white in the photo.

    Quote:That's what I was thinking too. It was also hard to tell from the photo whether or not she was solid buff or had a white on her back and tail. If she has the white, then I would say red sex link.

    I think the perspective of the picture is making her comb bigger looking than it is in relation to her body. She's a red sex-link. She'll lay you brown eggs like it's going out of style.

    Enjoy her, they're characters!
     
  7. Do you think you could put a bigger pic up? It is hard to tell what she looks like.
