    They're almost 6 months old. The lady I bought them from told me they were leghorns but I am not sure because their ears look red. They have not laid an egg yet. They're a lot smaller than my black sex links of the same age.

    They are Austra White or California White. First is cross of Australorp with Leghorn and second is cross of California Grey with Leghorn.

    I don't think they are Austra Whites which typically have a number of easily seen black flecks on them, but I agree that California Whites is a definitely possibility.

    Body type says 'leghorn' - pink tinged earlobes say 'cross' of some sort. Exactly what cross???

    I'm pretty sure they are not pure leghorns. I have 7 of them. Maybe a mix.

    I don't think they're purebred Leghorns, but I do believe they are some sort of Leghorn mix.

    They are probably a Leghorn mix.
