    I just adopted this girl from a shelter, she is an adult, very sweet. What do you guys think she is?

    Definitely not Ameraucana.

    She's a silver duckwing something [​IMG] Not a Dorking as she's lacking the 5th toe, not a Silver Leghorn as she has the wrong shank colour..

    With the white earlobes, I'm leaning toward silver Leghorn. Do you know what color eggs she's laying?

    If she is a leghorn she is not laying. Her comb would be much larger and redder.

    Her feather coloring is definitely silver duckwing, but I would expect her to have yellow legs if she were a Leghorn. The legs look whitish or light slate to me.

    What about LF Old English Game?

    Wouldn't Leghorns have yellow legs? I know typically hatchery birds don't always display those characteristics, but I don't know much about Silver Leghorns.
