    I picked up this gal a month or two ago. She's about 16 weeks old now. Any idea on the breed? The lady I got her from hatches australorps and New Hampshire reds. This was the only white pullet on the property, lol. She is friendly and has bigger comb/wattles than the other pullets who are 4 weeks older.

    She appears to be a White Leghorn pullet. Pretty bird!

    I think she is either a White Leghorn or a White Plymouth Rock.

    She is a White Leghorn because of her earlobe color. Leghorns have white earlobes and their body is more delicate looking, White Rocks have red earlobes they are also look more bulkier than White Leghorns. [​IMG]

    Thanks all. I didn't know if she was a leghorn or a white rock. She's so fun to watch and friendly, it makes me wish I would've ordered some leghorn chicks to raise. The rest of my flock will lay brown or green eggs, so her white ones will seem exotic. :)

    I'm not sure. It might be a mix, or a very poor quality Partridge Wyandotte. Where did you get it?
