    I have two hens that I don't know the breed of. I got these from Meyers Hatchery. It was the Rainbow layers so it covers most of what they have. Her comb is small and she has white ears and yellow legs. She is the same size and shape as the Splash Andalusian that I have but her legs are yellow.

    She is 11 weeks old in that picture. she really hasn't changed much and she is now going on 17 weeks. Didn't get a good picture of her this week. I am sure she isn't a leghorn because my Lt Brown Leghorns comb is very large and already flopping over. Her comb is still very small.

    Quote:I thought of Rock but her feathers are more flat and she is very sleek in the body.

    She looks like my leghorns. They have small combs, too.

    That is a white leghorn - pullet by the looks of it - looks just like my 6 girls who are aobut 9-10 weeks old.

    I see I have two more votes for leghorns. That is strange. I figured her comb would be way larger at 16 weeks.... The brown leghorn has her comb turning over already.

    You can see her comb here.

    Leghorn. She's not big enough to be a white rock.
