    I bought three of these as a straight run at TSC. The tag was assorted and the workers didn't know what they were. Too cute so we got them anyway. Any ideas?

    Could be a White Leghorn.

    It looks kinda...well...ummmm....meaty, for a Leghorn. Could just be the angle though?

    Yeah, I don't know. I was thinking it was the angle because the overall width doesn't seem much. But we need a full body shot to tell more. It'd be nice to see the legs too...

    Yah, That looks like a young version of my leghorn. I would need a full body to really tell, though

    Yeah, I actually tried looking downnnnnnnnn into the pic to see the legs!!! LOL Do you know how well that does NOT work!!!

    This is gonna sound bad, but here is how I tend to judge a Leghorn or not when you can't see the whole bird. The other common white birds (white rocks, and especially the cornish X) look ugly to me. The leghorns seem much prettier and have a very petite look. This little sweetie didn't seem as pretty to me......oh I feel bad saying that. So glad chickies can't read!!!!

    So, a full body shot, please????

    I am voting White Rock, too. Although, by the way she holds herself......I was kinda thinking Leghorn now.......can you tell I am NOT an expert. Sorry. [​IMG] How old are they? Leghorns get these absolutely massive combs pretty fast.

    They are six weeks. We are thinking this one is male, since the other girls' combs are much smaller.
