how can i tell the diffrance from a RIW and a leghorn?
On my chicks the leghorn legs are a dull yellow and the RIW have orange-yellow. You are suppose to be able to tell by body shape, I can't. The obvious answer, not one I ever want to hear, wait until they get bigger.
Hope that helps
When older, Leghorns will have a white earlobe whereas Rhode Island Whites will have a red earlobe.
a brown egg laying hen would generally have red earlobes; a white egg laying hen woud generally have white earlobes.
A RIW should have red earlobes and a leghorn would have white earlobes.
