    Ok, thank you for the information! She seems kind of small to me still, but I know they tend to be the smaller, more athletic breed. She is very sweet and friendly, she always comes right up to me and follows me around, but doesn’t want to be pet or held. :rolleyes:

    Is that an egg in pics #1 and 3? Easter eggs maybe?

    Haha I wish!!! They were foraging under a plum tree! It’s an unripe plum that fell! My 2 EE girls have a ways to go I believe. :D

    Not all Leghorns are white. I ordered 5 Brown Leghorns this spring. They are dark, which I expect will keep them safe fom coyotes, but they are still supposed to give a white egg. Can't wait! If hybridized or mixed, who knows what colors you might get after a gen or two!

    I wondered after stretching the photo. Sure did a good fake job. Yes, those EE'S always took a while for me. But those eggs are worth the wait!
