    If its an extra then your probably right. IF not, EE's do come in pure white. Its kinda early to tell, but post pics in about a week or 2 and I can help. They're kinda cute and are great layers if thats any consultation. [​IMG]

    It sure does look like my white leghorn (Henny Penny) but is it really early to tell.

    Thank you both so much for answering me. It wasn't a extra chick because it came out of the all EE's brooder that have there. I was just wondering because of the different color of legs (pink with a little yellow) and the white feathers.

    I'll post updates in a few weeks.

    Thanks Again, Mona

    I think leghorns are yellow chicks.... and, I think I see a muff and beard on that chick in the second picture.

    Probably an easter egger, but I could be wrong. You need to inspect the little thing really close and check for a muff and beard.

    Yeah, My leghorn (Ideal 236's) were more YELLOW as little babies... not that creamy color.
    I don't think thats a leghorn.

    I hope it is an EE. I have a mixed colored mostly white one and she is GORGEOUS! I think if she turned out like that, you would be most proud of your little EE.

    It has these cute looking puffy cheeks but thats all I can tell.

    I wish someone had a picture of a white EE baby chick or leghorn I could compare it too. If you know a good site with pictures PLEASE post it here.

    Thanks , Mona
