Any hints on differentiating white plymoth rocks and white leghorns?
Leghorns lay white eggs and are smaller than white rocks.Leghorns also have real floppy combs.
Yep, white plymoth rocks lay brown eggs and are a large chicken in comparison to a leggern, although they both have a single comb.
White Rocks are MUCH bigger than leghorns, leghorns have big floppy combs and lay white eggs, rocks have smaller combs and lay brown eggs. Also the Rocks seem a lot calmer than leghorns. My Leghorns were crazy! They wouldn't let me within 15 ft. of them!
leghorns are thinner in the back and behind the legs then their tail fans out
and they have more curves
and rocks tail just kinda goes up starting from middle of the back up at an angle to the end point
Are you talking standard or bantam? We have bantam rocks and they are a chunkier, more stout bird, bigger in the breast, not quite as streamline, and yes, have a smaller comb. Good cluck! (i mean luck )
