    Is the comb a single? (because it doesn't appear to be from what I can see in the pic). Some leghorns can have a rose comb, but the large single is more common.
    Also, leghorns have yellow skin and shanks. That birds appear more white-ish.

    It looks to me like an older rose comb brown leghorn hen. Has the white ear lobes. The leg color does get lighter as they age and have been laying for a while.

    Just got a closer look. It has a rose comb with whiter legs. So it is called a rose comb brown leghorn hen? Thanks for the replies.
