    The 1st picture is her now at 6 weeks old...very small for her age.

    The 2nd picture is of her as a baby, she's the brown one farthest to the left next to the SLW.

    The 3rd picture is my other girl, age 10 weeks..tiny right!?!

    I bought them as Danish Brown Leghorns, but if that's what they are why so small?

    Any help would be soo appreciated.

    Are you sure its not an EE? As a little chick it almost looks like chipmunk coloring. At 6wks looks like my EE. Now mine is about 9wks & more color is coming in around the necks. Mine are smaller then my Cuckoo Marans which are the same age & size when we got the bunch. I'm still new & learning though.

    Looks like a brown leghorn to me. As for the small size...all leghorns are pretty small. I think grown hens only come in around 4.5 lbs. and roos 6 or so.

    I don't know about "Danish" leghorns, but when I first saw the pic and saw the comment about being small, I though leghorn. I have a brown that hatched with an ee/leghorn mix and a br/nhred mix, and the pure leghorn is noticably smaller, and just more delicate looking. My adult leghorn hen is smaller than my dual purpose hens--bo, br, ee, etc.

    Thanks all! I am glad that they are leghorns, as that was what I wanted!
