    When we got this chick, she was your standard "little yellow chick" and, of course, she turned into a white chicken. I figured that she was a leghorn, but she's so small and, last night, I noticed that she has greenish earlobes.

    Now I'm really curious.

    She's about 3/4 the size of my other girls young girls (all are 19 weeks).

    Anyone have any ideas what she might be?

    I don't see green earlobes. As she matures more, they will get larger and whiten up on you. And yes, she's a Leghorn pullet.

    I vote Leghorn. If I remember right my leghorns had a greenish or blueish tint to the earlobes right at the bottom. ( been several yrs since I had any Leghorns though )

    I have a Leghorn (brown, not white) with pretty bright yellow earlobes still, at over 1 yr old. My other one has white lobes. Otherwise they look identical, I have no doubt they're both purebred (well, hatchery-quality pure [​IMG] but pretty good).

    Eggsellent! I'm glad to hear my guess confirmed!

    I do hope that she gets a little bigger, though... she's so much smaller than the other girls at 19 weeks.

    She is a Leghorn...they are small birds anyway, so she looks perfectly normal to me.

    My vote is for a leghorn pullet/hen too. They're very dainty in nature and come in both LF and Bantam.
