    Okay. I feel stupid, but I can't remember what breed one of my chickens is. She was one of the bigger ones from the get-go. As a chick, she was more yellowish. Now she's all white, nice big red comb, yellow legs/feet, and lays brown eggs. She's very sweet and likes to be held. She's four-ish months old in this picture. Anyone out there that can help me with her breed?

    I would say either white leghorn (most likely) or white rock!

    Not white leghorn. They lay white eggs and have white earlobes. She is a white Plymouth Rock.

    Right. She does lay brown eggs. So I knew she couldn't be a leghorn. Thank you so much for your comments.

    I got a White Rock pullet in my order of White Leghorn pullets this spring.
    You can sure see the difference in body shape, plumage and comb.
    I am fine with having her and she's a true beauty!
    Looking forward to some of her brown eggs soon!

    She has turned out to be one of my favorites. Of course, they are all my favorites! I really love her personality.
