Default Funny hen with floppy comb?

I have a mystery hen with a huge floppy comb! She has fresh water and food and they free range all afternoon. None of the other hens or rooster have floppy combs, but I am more concerned with what kind of chicken she is... Any ideas? She is 5 months old and the smallest of my 5 chicks.

My iPods not working so I can't see the pic but is she all white? Some breeds do have floppy combs so no need to worry. As long as its red it means she's healthy

She is brown with some gold around her hear, neck, and chest. It is red, but not as dark as my roosters.

I'm thinking it is a brown leghorn. Leghorns are generally smaller and have floppy combs a lot of the time. Hope this helps.
