    I have a pullet that looks like a RIR or production red BUT she has a white earlobe? Does anyone know what she could be?

    I never knew there was anything but a white leghorn. So after the replies I looked up pics of the red leghorn and that is def my little "Ellen"! Thanks so much. I will post a picture if I can. I took some, but cannot find the cord to transfer to my computer.
    Thanks again

    Haven't gotten any eggs from any of my pullets yet. Getting very impatient. lol I just don't think they were as old as I thought. They came from auction so very little information. If I decide to add more, which I am sure I will much to the hubbys dismay, I will order from a hatchery so I know what I am getting.
