    I bought this chicken when it was just a little baby. Now that its getting bigger I notice I cant find any other breeds like it. Plus still a little early to see if it will roo (hopeing not, would love to see what kind of eggs it would bring and see if it would be a great momma). So can you help me anyone?!? It is the silver one in the pic. TIA

    It's a pullet, and if her earlobes are white, she is a silver leghorn. [​IMG]

    ooooohhhh thank you!!!!! now do do some research on silver leghorns. :D Im guessing the black one is a rooster, big head gear, plus he/she is always right in the middle of the other two, plus it's much much much bigger than the other two. What do you think?

    The black chicken is probably a black leghorn - beautiful white earlobes, and I wouldn't bet the farm on it, but I think it is a pullet also. The white, again if it has white earlobes, is a leghorn, and it it too is a pullet.

    hmmm this peaked my interest. You said 'beautiful white earlobes'. Does that mean anything? I know im totally dumbish about chickens, especially breeds and perks. I picked the chicken cause how cute it was or something about its personality. I picked these three because the coloring were totally different than the others ...... Yeah im like a kid in the candy store LOL. You should see the polish i just picked up a few weeks ago.................... their markings and personality are AMAZING.
