    Got this chick from the assorted pullet bin at TSC. I believe we have been able to determine done of the others were red stars. The chicks in question now are very fine light yellow first feathers. I included pictures of feet, head, back and profile. I was hoping for a white leg horn but they also had a bin of straight run leg horns so it may be something else. But hopefully not cornish x (I want layers).

    Its probably a white Leghorn, but it could also be a white Rock.

    White rock wouldn't be bad either I guess. That would go with all the other brown egg layers I have. They get bigger than leg horns but I hear they lay pretty good.

    Yes probably white leghorn or white rock...you'll know when it feathers in.

    White Leghorn will have a white earlobe....rock a red earlobe.

    Well I am beginning to think this little chick is/was a white leg horn. At 9 weeks she is the same height as my red stars but starting to look a lot leaner. Everyone keeps saying look at her eat lobes to see if she's a LH or a white rock.... This has gone over about as well as Russian hieroglyphics! Can anyone tell me what they see in this side shot when it comes to lobes
