    Hi, I am really new to keeping chickens so dont know that much about them apart from they are so lovely and follow me everywhere lol!! I have had mine (4 of them) for about 3 weeks and 1 of them lays and 2 of them are getting darker pink combs now but my other one doesnt seem to be doing much and its comb hasnt really grown!

    Looks like a white rock pullet to me. The tail doesn't look right for the leghorn IMO.

    She isn't a leghorn. Leghorns have white earlobes. I'd say some kind of cross. She looks like my red star roos, except I'd guess she's a hen.

    I'm hoping she is a hen as thats what i've paid for lol!! And as her comb is still very pink and small i'm sure she is a hen!!
