    Please tell me what are they. No egg laying yet so idk which breed. If they lay atleast i know if they are brown or white. SOOOOO CONFUSED!T.T
    Some of my pic shows that the earlobe is green/yellow so i am going crazy...

    Looks like white earlobes, so I guess leghorn. That rooster would be real scrawny for a rock.

    Leghorns. White earlobes. Super skinny rooster with huge comb= Leghorn

    Those large white ear lobes = leghorn! Looks like a young rooster, but the female leghorns will also have large combs and wattle but will be much smaller and shorter than their male counterparts.

    She made me suspicious because her earlobe isn't 100% white like other leghorns and she havn't lay a single egg yet and she is 19 weeks already. She is also SUPER friendly and not scared of people at all like my rooster. And people are saying saying she is a hatchery type of white rock.

    leghorns. hatchery/poor quality leghorns may not have fully white earlobes which is a defect for the breed.

    Not saying, guessing because the white earlobes were not visible in your other post. They are both leghorns as the white earlobes are clearly visible in these pictures and she is still a week or so from laying.

    Quote:...i guess....cause she is not even squating.
    Even my silkies make more noise than her.


    She also loves to peck my back, what does that mean?
