    This little gal was sold to us as a BO, but as her wing feathers are starting to come in, they look lighter than I remember. Could she be a white leghorn, or possibly another breed? She is 10-14 days old. Thanks everyone!

    I was sold a welsummer that grew muffs and layed green eggs. One weird welsummer lol. I think it looks like a leghorn, it has white earlobes right?

    Earlobe color doesn't develop until sexual maturity around 14-16 weeks. Possibly more likely this is a red sexlink male (which are mostly white) - where did you get it from?
