Can anyone tell me anything about the color/pattern of this SF pullet?

 Is she from a hatchery?

It's the spots that are puzzling. Our pullets were a light fawn colour whilst the cockerels were dark only on their wings to begin.

I have no idea, she may be from a hatchery....The lady I bought her from seemed to indicate the man who gave them to her was raising Salmon Faverolles. He had 3 different trios.

 

I can't find anything, anywhere on the net that looks like this pullet! She's very sweet. When I come out she comes over and hunches at my feet, I feed her treats by hand. Sometimes I get the impression she doesn't see very well because of the muffs being so big.

 

Thank you for looking :)

It seems a lot of the hens out of hatcheries in the past few years had very poor coloring. Some were even half black! Check out the Faverolles thread. There are pictures of some of them on there.

 

Here it is. This takes you to the most recent post. It's a LONG thread.
