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.

    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]
