Is a dark brown stripe head to tail offset by lighter brown on both sides typically identifiying for danish brown leghorns pullets?
I have some I am trying to sort by breed even t
hey are only three-day olds? confused

Not that a mixed breed couldn't have the same colours in their down, but essentially, you're correct. The dark brown stripe is pretty evident of the Danish Brown Leghorn. The roos are very pretty, too.

Thanks so very much! I really appreciate your helpfulness. We have moved since we last had chickens away from wiser bird friends. I can ask a question and get an answer within hours! Thanks for the Id (bought mine from a hatchery pretty sure not a mixed breed!) cool
