    We got this pullet this year and named her Raccoon because of the stripes she used to have. Any ideas on what her breed might be?

    I just looked up photos for both those breeds, and she looks similar to both. But she does not have that white skin (whatever it is called) on the side of her face that I saw in the photos of the Brown Leghorns.

    The white earlobes don't develop until they are older. She's got some growing to do before she develops them if she is a brown Leghorn. I agree with the other posters that she is probably either a brown Leghorn or a Welsummer.​
