    I'm sorry, it's a bad picture. It's raining out but when I get a better one I can post it. They are dark colored and have white sometimes looks like light blue spots on their cheeks. They were given to me. Oh, and they lay medium white eggs.

    [​IMG] She appears to be a leghorn of some sort, but we need a better picture to venture a guess as to variety.

    That would be my guess, too, but it would be a 'guess' for sure.

    Thank you, again. I've looked at breeds on here and Google's and couldn't find ones that looked like them. But when I google brown leghorns they do lol. I've been thinking about posting my eggs on my Etsy store and those girls lay the most so wanted to make sure I put the breed in the description. Thanks again!
