    With the red earlobes, that's not a Leghorn. That's an Amber Link. Could be a pullet. need better pictures that really show the feathering crisply.

    Interesting point, now that you mention it. I took another look at my leghorns and the lobes were quite different. My ambers looked similar though. Top is leghorn, bottom is asl.

    Looks like a mix, maybe "Amberlink" but a cockerel
