WOW, that is a big difference. You are probably right about it being a pullet.

Speckled Hen  your pictures  tell quite a story  - wow, hatchery stuff CAN be all over weird. I could see people thinking the poorly barred one was a mix - well to a breeder it would seem that way.  Their silkies are usually beyond awful as well.

Amazing and beautiful. I learn so much more from you Guys than reading articles alone. I don't remember the hatchery but they were sold as BR. It's a shame there are so few pure breeds today but on the other hand, some mixes are just beautiful!

I say pullet. I have some really white looking ones...
When I don't fit in and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life

It makes this horrible crying noise when I take just the buff orp out to run around but it doesn't care if I take the other BR out. Funny.
