    I am trying to figure out what the little dark bodied gold necked pullet is. She came j&m the Murray McMurray rainbow layers pack and she had a second just like her. She is about 4 months old.
    Thank you!

    Sorry the second and third picture doesn't show her!
     
  3. I may be wrong, but she looks like an EE with no muffs. What type of comb does she have?

    I'd guess single comb

    Light brown leghorn!
    I'm sure of it. They are very distinctive looking as chicks and I remember wondering about those two.

    If she really has a white earlobe as pictured, then yes she's a brown leghorn. For the age, she really doesn't have much comb, though. If I didn't see the earlobe, I'd be thinking Welsummer.

    She seems small for 4 months to be a Brown Leghorn to me...and I agree that's not much comb for a Leghorn. Her coloring is correct for a Leghorn especially with the white earlobe....breast is a bit muted for a Welsummer, ditto for back feathers, and earlobe would be red.
