    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 sure...it 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

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure it is a she, both the breeds have large combs for a hen ...she is close to 12 weeks old..

    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.
