    Leghorn

    EasterEgger, as I'm guessing from the leg color combined with the color of the bird.

    1. Brown Leghorn
    2. Easter Egger

    So basically I agree with ChickenWisperer.

    The first is a brown leghorn, the second I doubt is an Easter Egger, and if it is - It's crossed with Leghorn. That's a very skinny body-type, and the color is too much of a normal BBR color to be an EE from a hatchery.

    First is a brown leghorn hen.

    Does the second hen have white earlobes? I can't really tell in the pic. She looks quite similar to my brown leghorn/EE mix who does have white lobes and lays eggs with the faintest blush of green.

    Quote:Well there ya go. [​IMG] That's a confirmation the Leghorn and a confirmation that the second one is not an EE.
