    Leghorn.

    Reds are a solid orange color as a chick, then feather out a reddish orange color as they grow up. (although good quality ones are a deep blood red)

    if you are positive it is one of those two breeds then I would go with Leghorn. However, if you are not real sure, I would go with an Ameraucana or EE. All of my EEs had those same spectale lines going back and down from the eye, just like your chick here.

    Well, that is no way an RIR. But if you suspect a leghorn I'll say it's that. But if you're not sure, that looks just like an EE to me.
