    I was told this hen was a brown leghorn but I have my doubts. I have four others that are very much the typical single comb variety, but this one is different. Could she still be a brown leghorn, but a different variety or some thing else.

    No white ear lobes + no yellow legs = not a Leghorn. Possibly a game hen or a cross of some sort, [type isn't all that "gamey"]

    Not a leghorn for reasons NYREDS already stated. I'm going with the game or game cross assessment as well. [​IMG] She'll make you a good broody.

    No she has only gone broody once. Set on 8 eggs and hatched only one.

    Came from a hatchery with the other Brown leghorns, but as you can see she don't fit the bill.

    Her legs are a different color than my brown leghorns' legs. They're yellow. And she doesn't look quite right either. No guess on what she is.

    Could she be a cross with an EE?

    Not sure if I mentioned it, but she lays brown eggs.
