    I think I have narrowed her down to a Light brown leghorn and an EE. She is one of 13 pullets received from MPC ten days ago. That group was supposed to have contained 3 EEs and one light brown leghorn. I had one die that looked just like her so that would make me think EE but she looks a lot like other pics of lt brown leghorns.

    She looks in the picture to have greenish dark legs? Leghorns usually have yellow or fairly light colored legs. Can't really tell on the picture but it does look like she has cheek puffs also?

    Yes I don’t think it’s a leghorn. They usually have lighter leg color like Kelsie said. Could she be a mix? Here is a pic of a light brown leghorn:

    That's your EE. Puffy cheeks and willow legs. Your brown Leghorn would have a smooth face and yellow legs.

    Thanks! Yes definitely dark green legs. There may be some cheek puffs there but not prominent yet. So EE she is. The other two EEs are yellowish in color with big cheek puffs.

    Good for you. EEs are great hens!(and really cute chicks!) :)
