    I was guessing leghorn, but wasn't sure, even though I have 2 myself. Just wait, ChurpyChicken, that comb of hers is going to get really big! [​IMG]

    I had a brown Leghorn too. Her name was Abby after the Abby on NCIS. She was a bit flighty with everyone but me. She was a sweet girl. I love the floppy comb. Gives them such character. [​IMG]

    A Bobcat got her. [​IMG]

    When she gets closer to sexual maturity, her comb will lengthen. In this breed, the hens' combs will flop to one side of her head as she ages and matures.
