    I ordered white plymoth rock pullets but one of them is half the size of the other two and looking at her ears they look yellow instead of red, thinking it might be a leghorn. Is she a white rock or leghorn??? Next question could she be crossed with my SLW roo? What color eggs would I get from the chicks? She will be 12 weeks tomorrow [​IMG]

    Yay!! She is the most friendly of all of our chickens. At least now I will know her eggs vs. all the brown and blue eggs [​IMG]

    Yep, leghorn! WR are more plump and round in the midsection with shorter tails.
