    hi, I posted this originally to the wrong forum but, I have a 10-11 month old female chicken, and im not sure weather if she’s a leghorn or Plymouth? She lays brown eggs but I’ve been told she has white earlobes which leghorns have.

    Thank you for the confirmation! And yes, I’ve noticed she was a little bit bigger than a leghorn!

    I think she is a mix. Where did you get her? She does appear to have white earlobes, but she lays brown eggs?

    I got her at a store called Close Feed & Supply here in the Bay Area, and I’ve been told he has white earlobes but she lays light brown eggs.

    The black on the tail isn't common in either White Plymouth Rocks or Leghorns. I've bought a mix from a feed store, just slip up in the hatchery.
