    I have two Leghorn pullets who are getting red and white feathers. I'm curious to know what color will stick? Are these red Leghorns? [​IMG]

    That looks to be a red sex link, not leghorn

    Ah, that could be. They were labeled Leghorns, but you never know.

    Good news is you'll still be up to your ears in eggs, they'll just be brown instead of white

    Could they be ISA Brown pullets? Looking at pictures they certainly resemble them and I do remember TS had a tub full of them as well. I'm wondering if they swapped their signs.
