    back in March I Posted about a days old chick and asked what it might be? another RIR? or???
    She developed very different than the RIR in the group. she is about 1/2 to a 1/3 the size of my other similar age pullets. Anyway! I now know what she is <G>
    here she was back in March

    Does everyone agree she is a red leghorn?

    she is pretty quick, a bit shy, but that is okay!

    she has white earlobes
    so no need to be sorry!
    her ear area has gone from skin color (yellowish) to white in the last 3-6 weeks.

    I got her from Ideal, who does carry red leghorns.
    she was part of a rare breed pullet assortment.

    As far as her being a RIR
    I don't think they have white earlobes,
    I will be sure to post when she lays,
    she is 5 months now,
    I'm guessing white eggs!
    and breed Red Leghorn, I just don't see her being any other breed.
    anyone else think she is a RIR? with white earlobes?

    Id say she's a leghorn. A RIR would not have white earlobes.

    I agree, she looks like a red leghorn. Her tail and white earlobes give it away. Her color is great, I got some red leghorns from Sandhill and they had better type but they were lighter color. The best thing to do would be to get some from sandhill and a couple more from ideal and cross the two lines to get better type and color.

    I'd say Leghorn, but for the tail and ear, she looks like a RIR.

    That's a keeper!

    Remember to post pics of the eggs.
