    There was some question when she was a chick if she was an Ancona or a leghorn, the consensus was finally Ancona. She was in the assorted pullets bin of a feed store. What do you think?

    Looks like an Ancona to me. But then again I think that Exchequer Leghorns look like that also.

    I'd call her whatever it was that I ordered.

    Another characteristic of Ancona's is a larger than normal comb, sometimes the comb even flops over. Your girl's comb looks large to me, so I bet she is indeed an ancona. Nice looking.

    Yep, Ancona. A Leghorn would have yellow legs.
