i have a brown leghorn roo and 5 rir hens and one buff in a pen.
Well its hard to say if they are pure and not hatchery birds you could get bigger Leghorn kind of bird and or smaller RIR kind of bird.
Much like a Perduction Red..... If they are hatchery chicks its had to tell..
The Rhoad Island Red chicken has Leghorn in it along with Red Malay and a Asiatic native stock.
i have someabout 3 to 4 weeks old some have more brown leghorn markings on their feather than the others and all are red and redish brown color. i just wanted red color leghorns that was not wild as the leghorn roo i have. he is like racecar fast when you try to catch him. i rir are not as bad to run.
here is one of them. i love the color so far. but i know it's going to change.
Here are my Leghorn/RIR chicks at 3 weeks. One week later they're about twice that size. The first one is just starting to get some dark coloring around the back of the neck.
