    I was thinking she was a Tera Tint or White Leghorn Mix since she is from the "Assorted White Pullet" bin at TSC.. But at 15 weeks she started laying the prettiest light brown eggs...

    So is she a White Plymouth Rock???

    This girl... (Her comb & wattle are huge a& red now (this old pic)

    [​IMG]

    laid these 3 eggs... (all are light brown, crappy cell phone pic)

    I'm not an expert on Plymouths, but I agree with you that you have at least one. A leghorn or leghorn mix would have white ears and would lay white eggs.

    grats on a pretty bird, and dreamy creamy colored eggs!

    My vote too -- white rock. The eggs from my BPR are light brown, almost pink tinted sometimes.

    A very pretty chicken...congrats.

    She's so pretty and a clean white! I guess you don't have red clay where you live.
