Could this be a brown leghorn?

    I received some hatching eggs and was told this was a white rock. I'm having my doubts and was wondering what you all think. I'm thinking maybe a brown leghorn, but really have no clue.

    Dark red in the center is the one I'm curious about.

    The chick on the right with the dark brown chest feathers.

    Pig out pic--the one on the right eating

    Any ideas??

    From the baby pic she looks like a RIR to me. Not really sure on the older pics, but she isn't a Brown Leghorn. Is she as dark red as she appears in the older pics?

    I agree, RIR. Definately not a brown leghorn [​IMG]

    Doesn't look like my Danish Brown Leghorns. (Is there a different kind of Brown Leghorn?) Here are some pics when they were young:

    You know, when she first hatched I thought RIR but now her feathers seem to be coming in more of a dark brown. So I dunno! I'll try to get a better shot tonight.

    Thanks all for your suggestions! [​IMG]
