    If it has white earlobes, it's a leghorn. If it has red earlobes, it is most likely a white rock. If a leghorn, it will lay white eggs - eggs will be brown if it is a rock.

    x2.

    From the comb and that tail, my guess is Leghorn.

    Agreed; given it's body type I'm thinking it's a White Leghorn.

    I lean toward leghorn too, but it would be better to have pictures of the bird standing, side shot, rear, and face. I have a leghorn who started laying a few weeks ago. She has white skin near her ear that kind of has a shine to it.
