    She is about 18 weeks, really small. Like our 21 week old BR and BO are HUGE compared to her, but she is a tad bigger than my bantams. You can see in the picture she is smaller than my EE who are 16 weeks old.

    Here is a link with previous pics of her. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=303079 I thought maybe now that she is older people could tell what she might be. Funny we thought she was a he for a LONG time. She was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ugly. We named her Stew Pot and that is still what we call her even though she has a place with us now as long as she lays. lol.
    In this one you can see her tiny little deformed extra toe.

    She looks a bit like a Leghorn or a White Rock to me. [​IMG]

    Is she laying yet?

    She looks exactly like my white leghorn (minus the extra toe).

    I asked to double check that my cockerels were leghorns today, and it was confirmed. "Clover" is their nestmate.

    That extra toe is just a genetic oops, resulting in an extra toenail. I don't believe she has any of the 5 toes breeds mixed in with her. I'm going to say she's a leghorn.

    No not laying yet. Leghorns lay white eggs, right? Do White rocks lay brown? Guess that would tell the difference. lol. I can't wait till she starts laying!

    I say White Rock. At 18 weeks I'd expect a Leghorn's comb to be MUCH bigger, my white Leghorn hens have bigger combs than my roosters.
