Meet Henrietta!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Henrietta came to us after being hatched by an elementary class, adopted by some well-meaning hippy types, then passed to a friend. Her flock was decimated by a fox, and she was the only one left. She came to us alone, lovely and a little nervous, but has become such a sweet little girl! She loves me,tolerates my toddler, and terrorizes our tiny terrier. Here she is just making sure my phone and fingertips aren't hiding anything tasty. smile.png Any ideas about her breed would be nice! We got her with zero info. We think she is about 3 yrs old.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! We have a hen that looks very similar (also!) named Henrietta! Sadly, we don't know what breed our Henrietta is either!

Oh how interesting! Imagine Henrietta is not an unusual name for a chicken, but to have another that looks very similar makes it uncanny! Post a picture!

I don't think she's a Speckled Sussex. She doesn't have any white speckles. She looks closest to a Black Sex Link (what a name!), but not quite. Maybe she's a cross breed of a Speckled Sussex and a Black Sex Link. She does have white flight feathers!

I'm glad Henrietta has found a good home with you! I agree, she isn't 100% SS but very well could be a mix. Thanks for sharing her pictures!

Thanks! She's going to get some sisters soon too, so she won't be a lonely fowl for long. :) I'll brag about them in a post when they hatch!!!!!
