    I had ordered some fertile barred rock eggs for my broody hen to hatch and there was an 'extra" egg in the batch that was white. It has now hatched (2 weeks ago) and the feathers are coming in white and it has a yellow/orangish comb and legs. I have no idea what it is?? Seems to be taller and lankier than the other chicks as well.

    Sounds like a Leghorn. Here's a pic of mine, she's a week older than yours....
