    This pullet really has me scratching my head as to what breed she really is. She was hatched in march and came from mcmurray in one of their collections, so I don't think she's a mutt.

    She has pink legs and beak, like an orpington, but has a light frame, is very flighty and noisey & lays white eggs like a leghorn, but leghorns have yellow legs & beak.

    The very front of her comb is "wavey" but not floppy like my other leghorns.

    I was just looking at buff minorca's online, and I think that may be what she is.

I wanted to get a "grab bag" type order but I was afraid of what I would get.. So this last order I used a different company so I could get Welsummers, McMurray dont have those.. You done good..
