    Okay, so I was browsing the classifieds in my area and came across a woman giving away a rooster (along with 1 Easter Egger and 1 Ameraucana hen). When I asked what breed the roo was, she told me it was a Texas Brown Horn. What is that?? I've never heard of it. The only thing I could figure was that she was trying to say it was a Brown Leghorn from Texas. Any ideas?

    Your guess was pretty much what I was going to say. There's no such breed. It could also be a Red SL. People love to make up all sorts of names for those.

    Yep, it's a brown leghorn:

    Maybe some sort of localism, or an individual mistake. Maybe we need to start a breed called Texas Brown Horns...

    Thanks for your help! The stuff I see on local classifieds is so weird...
