    The dark brown leghorns are much darker than the light. The light brown leghorn female has a salmon breast. There are probably photos on Feathersite.

    now for the dark brown leghorn hen...

    I personally think the light brown leghorn rooster is much prettier!!

    A couple of months ago I got some Brown Leghorn chicks. I didn't know if they were light or dark brown leghorns. I did some research and believe they are Dark Brown Leghorns. Here is one of the young pullets. I put her in a cage because she didn't want to cooperate.
