I am not sure either, but it doesn't look like any leghorn I have ever seen, and I am thinking she is a mix of a couple of different things.
Her coloring/penciling reminds me of my americaunas but the head and face.....I don't know
I hope someone can help you out.
I have had leghorns though and I would be very surprised to hear thats a leghorn.

I'd like to say sultain x leghorn or possibly EE or even more mixes. I don't see very much silkie in her due to the light skin, but perhaps silkie was further in the past.

I would say all of these are possibilities, so hard to tell. I know you want something more definitive.
I do see something like americauna/easter egger for sure though, just my opinion.
You say you have three that look just like this though huh?
Is there anyway of finding out anything about them?
I wonder if the parents were mixes as well.
