    exchequer leghorn chick and an Ancona

    I received one in the Meyer Pullet surprise in Oct, I had thought it was a Anacona for the longest time, now I am not so has yellow legs and is mostly black with white spots, but it was a black and white chick. Extremely friendly to all. If need be I will post a picture later

    An ancona is mottled, black feathers with white tips. An exchequer leghorn has black and white feathers. It will be easier to tell her breed when her big girl feathers grow in, I think they took the same as chicks.
