white rock, white wyandotte, or a delaware or wyandotte leghorn cross?

    She has a small single comb. Her legs-I would not say they are yellow or pink. They are kind of a mix-pale yellow and pink and peach. She is white, however, she has delaware or columbian type ghosting/light gray markings on neck and ends of tail only. You can see it here if you look closely. She runs smaller than the rest from her hatch, and she is really so sweet-the least afraid of me. From the same barnyard sale, they had a leghorn and I got what appears to be a columbian wyandotte(pea comb, nice black/white on tail and neck feathers-the chicken in my avatar). If that helps. I would love to confirm what she is. :) She is probably around 22-24 weeks.

    Thanks so much!

    Here she is when she was younger-see the neck barring? She has these dark areas on tips of her tail now as well, but the rest of her feathers are snow white-only that ghost shading on neck area and very tips of tail feathers.

    Columbian Wyandotte x Leghorn would be a good guess. However, in the first picture she looks quite large-framed for such a cross.

    My guess is that she's a Delaware/White Rock mix. I don't think that she has Wyandotte in her, as she would likely have a rose comb (rose comb is dominant to single comb).

    Thanks :) You know, I see what you mean now...she is smaller than other hens her same age, BUT, she def is not long and lean like a leghorn. I have always noticed that her breast is very puffy looking.

    Okay that is great info about the comb dominance, thanks. :) :)
