    What color are the bottom of her feet, Jersey giants have yellow on the bottom of their feet. (or maybe thats only for black JG?) maybe someone else can fill us in on that?

    Not a leghorn, they have yellow legs.

    young birds legs will look greenish but will turn slate gray with age, if she's older (I would say 5 months or older) then she is EE.
    Whites lack the ammount black pigment that Blacks do so their legs wont be as dark as the Blacks

    Edit to say - I believe you have a white JG!

    White Giants should have willow green legs so your bird is probably a Giant
