My mom just bought some chickens and we were hoping to figure out what breed they are? If any mone has any idea it would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

She looks like a blue Australorp perhaps.  Has she laid any eggs for you yet as that could help narrow it down.

A large blue hen with no other characteristics is going to be hard to narrow down exactly. I'll vote Australorp as well. Nothing else is coming to mind "other than maybe a Jersey Giant, but that doesn't look right either".  Though her legs are lighter than they should be for an Australorp.

I'm thinking mixed breed. No specific breed jumps out when I look at her. She's a nice blue Barnyard Mix is my guess.

She a good sized, healthy looking hen. She should to good for you. Doesn't look particularly old either.

Is she starting to molt or have some rooster damage? I'm trying to figure out how old she may be - looking kind of rough otherwise. I think blue Australorp also
