    Looks similar to an Easter egger that I have.

    It could be a clean faced Easter Egger

    The only problem is their bird has greenish/slate colored legs which is not a Leghorn trait.

    Out of my 3 EE from last year, 2 had cheek muffs, and one doesn't. There are more without them now.

    I agree. It looks like an Easter Egger. I've seen some with beards, some with cheek tufts, some with both, and some with neither.
