    The head and neck don't say Leghorn.

    What color are its legs?

    Yellow = Buff Rock

    White/Pink = Orpington

    What color are its earlobes?

    White = Leghorn or poor quality Orpington or Rock

    Red = Orpington or Rock

    Buff Leghorn. How's her body as a whole? She just doesn't have a Leghorn neck, head, wattles, or comb . . .

    She loops Orp-ish.


    Are her earlobes solid white or do they have any red in them? She may just be a really poor quality or crossed Buff Rock.

    She does remind me of an orpington tho...what color eggs do they lay usually? When she starts laying i might be able to tell by then?
