    I was looking at her "ears" today and noticed that they have the whiteness theat leghorns do. What color eggs do Leghorns lay.

    Brown leghorns actually also lay white eggs. The "brown" in that case refers to the color of the chickens, not to their eggs.

    Quote:Absolutely false! In the first place there is only one breed of Leghorns but there are several varieties of Leghorn including Light & Dark Brown.
    Regardless of the variety all Leghorns lay white eggs.

    That's a single-comb brown leghorn. Lucky you! I've got one that's 4 weeks old, and I can't wait til she looks like that. [​IMG]
