    She came with 3 EE's that I adopted last night. Owner did not know breed. He said she layed her first egg yesterday...tan in color. Very friendly as are the EE's.

    Thank you very much! I'll read up on both breeds. I've only ever had EE's and Australorps. I lost my flock last year so I'm starting a brand new flock.
    I LOVE CHICKENS!♡

    I can't see the comb very well in the photos but what I can see of it appears to be a rose comb rather than a single comb which would eliminate it as a White Rock. I'm thinking you have a Rhode Island Whte which are rose combed.

    P.S. I can't see the legs either, but if it is a Rhode Island White, the legs should be yellow.

    Does this show the color of her leg any better?

    No it doesn't. But I hope she doesn't lose a toe stuck behind that handle.
