    The first ones comb isn't big enough for leghorn. I'd say white rock... what color eggs does she lay?

    The two in the middle are mutts.

    The last is a Production Red (hatchery version of RIR).

    Quote:I have three of them and they lay very pale but not white eggs. Very easily candled when in the incubator. They are my best layers too.

    What I thought [​IMG] The red/gold one is rather mean too! Not to us but to the other roosters who mess with the white chickens in the first picture. He's claimed all three for his own.

    The white one, is she white and dirty or is the color in the picture her feather color? Comb is small for a leghorn but I'm wondering if she's a leghorn mix. My half leghorn girls lay very pale eggs, not quite white, but like the white is diluting the other parent's color, if that makes sense. Really, not that it matters to me, like you I think mutts are great. I'm in it for the eggs and the "ooh, pretty hen!"
