Well sonce she's been here her come has really reddened up and become more erect, and well it's just plain short, lol. not LH at all! Either way she's still a cutie and she has really settled in with everyone so she's here to stay!

I would agree. And not all Leghorns have the huge floppy comb, I have raised many Leghorns and had several female, and male birds for that matter, that had pretty small combs compared to the other birds. It wasnt a common thing, but it did happen every once in awhile.

She is Standard-sized just like a Leghorn... I don't think there's any Cornish in there though, she has very petite little legs that sit pretty close to eachother, not spaced farther apart like a Cornish chickens' are...... Maybe she is just a small-combed WLH

She does look a little young. But she has yellow legs like a Leghorn, white earlobes, and has the same type as a Leghorn as well. Regardless of what she is, she is very pretty!

You have to remember, we live in a different country than you do so some breeds will not look exactly alike. She is for sure not a broiler or Cornish of any kind, her legs are far to thin and set to close together under her body.

I agree with the majority here that it's a leghorn too.
Based on the white ear lobes and it looks much like my two girls. One of which is getting a very large comb while the others is average size and not as red. They are same age.
