    Looks to me like a Light Brown Leghorn.

    She should be laying white eggs. Are you feeding her a peanut oil based diet?

    she looks like a brown leghorn, BUT she should lay white [​IMG]
    White lobes *usually* means white eggs, maybe she is a mix?
    Are you sure it is her that is laying the brown?

    I've never seen a Light Brown Leghorn with white ears that lays a brown egg.

    Well..... she could be laying white eggs - I'm actually not sure come to think.
    I went to the NC State Fair early one morning before it officially began for the week and asked to buy some hens - I drove home with a crazy mix. One hen is even a Maran frizzle mix!!
    Thanks for the input! Leg horn it is!

    I agree with the others, brown leghorn.
