    [​IMG] Your 'Leghorn' is in actuality an EE and is the one that laid the green egg.

    OMG! I had no idea. that is crazy. We were told she was an Americana when we got her.... Then her feathers turned white and we assumed she was Leghorn. Thank you for helping me! Any ideas what to expect with her?? She was really loud this morning and when I checked on her she was in the nest... She was like momma bear staring at me and he other one! hahahaha. So do you think my Wyandotte is one for sure??

    Your Wyandotte looks to be as advertised. [​IMG]

    Are those the same bird? The top one looks just like my Leghorn did when she was younger (tall tail feathers). I have a Silver Laced Wyandotte that just started laying light pinkish-brown eggs.

    No they are two different birds. A golden laced Wyandotte and I guess now she is a Easter Egger? Thought she was a Leghorn....

    Leghorns have yellow legs and large single combs. Yours has green legs and a pea comb, typical of Easter Eggers.
