Do you see any color yet on it's earlobe? Welsummers will have red ears, and leghorns will have white.

It's a bit hard to tell from that photo what you have. A body profile shot might help. Leghorns are a lot thinner, and Welsummers have more muscle.

I know this is an old thread but maybe some here that answered will see it, could let me know what age I would start to see white in the earlobe of a light brown Leghorn. We ordered one welsummer and one Leghorn and I'm not sure which is which, they look so similar when we got them and still now at 5 1/2 weeks.
