    We were given these 2 brown chickens and were told they were Leghorn pullets. I have never seen a Leghorn this color, is that what they are and are they both pullets? They are 13 weeks old. Thanks!

    Yellow legs + white earlobes + body coloration = light brown Leghorn. Wonderful birds. [​IMG]

    Quote:Oh, and they're both pullets/hens. Cockerels/cocks have a bit different coloration.
