    i got a chicken from a friend, she knows the father was a leghorn, but forgot what breed the mother is. (Picture below) she sent me a picture so hopefully I can find out.

    If the father was a leghorn and the mother was "another breed" then that bird is not a breed. It's a mix. In any case, it looks like some sort of bantam mix.

    That bird looks lie a OEGb. Is this the mixed bird, or the 'mother'?

    This is what the mother looks like, it’s from April 23. I may have grabbed the wrong photo.

    Well, it's looking like a definite cockerel from what I can see. Can we get a side pic without caging in the way?

    That’s the only pic she could get, her chickens and Roos are free range.

    The original photo posted is BBR OEGB cockerel. Definitely not the mom.

    The second photo is not a leghorn. Looks like another OEGB.
