    So I ordered some brown large layers about 3 months ago. And I received some that are all white and they look like leghorns. Do leghorns lay large brown eggs? I thought they laid only white eggs?

    They look alot like the leghorn juvenile with the very short comb.

    But they also look like the Rhode Island Whites. Only mine have combs.

    I was looking for Plymouth White Rocks but don't seem them.

    They are very thin and flighty as could be.
