    I have only been a chicken momma for about 6 months and am learning as much as I can but cannot figure this one out. It appears a she anyhow. My guess is White Leghorn as she came from a fella that has chicken houses for commercial purposes. She is a fiesty little thing and about 3 months Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you! I feel good knowing I was right. I am learning as I go. She was given to me with a rhode island red and a black and white one that was said to be a dominecker. I think I should post it and get confirmation on the black and white one too.

    Looks like a White Plymouth Rock to me. Seems a bit stocky for a Leghorn. And to me, looks male.

    We shall see if it crows. I like that bird so much that I will have to keep it even if it is a rooster.
