Any guesses on my little pullet's breed?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

"Henny Penny" wound up being the only pullet of 6 classroom chicks! Go figure! Their breeds were all quite apparent (or crosses) but this one I'm still curious about. Any ideas about the breeds she might have come from? (Also from that farm were Barred Rock and Dark Brahma crosses and what appeared to be an easter egger mix)

 

She appears to be a white/buff/dirty shade of off-white with specks of black.

I think she is just a mixed breed. It's hard to tell if there where already mixed breeds at the farm. Maybe a rhode island white cross. Or white Cornish cross.

She is very pretty though.

Mixed breed

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

She looks like a barred Rock crossed with something dominant white, giving her that "ghost" barring. She's a mixed breed bird who should lay a decent amount of brown eggs.

Thanks so much! She does look quite like a RI white, I hadn't heard of that breed before. Whatever she is, she's friendly and healthy and I can't wait to see how she lays! wink.png

Thank you! I know mixes are hard to decipher, but nobody's laying yet and I'm so excited to see how these eggs will be! Your suggestions are appreciated. wink.png

I agree with Donrae, she does looks like she has some recessive barring in her. What ever she is, she sure is pretty!
