Hello! someone told me she looks like a leghorn mix because of the slender body and tail. I ordered her as a white rock.. Any thoughts? She is 13 weeks

She doesn't look like a mix. She could be either a Leghorn or a Plymouth Rock but since you ordered a Plymouth Rock I'm think that. Normally they aren't slim but hatcheries these days are messing up the 'norm' for breeds. What color are its earlobes?

Hatcheries have birds that are not up to type.
judging by the comb, she is a white rock. Leghorns have a bigger floppy comb

It's a white Rock. Hatcheries don't exactly breed towards the SOP. Their objective is to produce the maximum number of chicks possible. As a result hatchery birds often only vaguely resemble the breed.
