    I think that she is a delaware but someone told me that she has Silkie in her. I was just wondering. Any way about it she is beautiful and soft.

    She sits great once she calms down.

    Here is a good look at her legs.

    My Blue Andalusion has the "hairy" legs also. So any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    She isn't a Delaware, though she could be a cross of a Del and something with white skin and feathered legs. Delawares have yellow legs, no feathers on them, barred hackles and the pullets have tail black (black feathers edged in white).

    Thank you for your responses. I got her and 4 others from a man who was being forced to get rid of a lot of his animals by the insurance co. he told us that the Blue was a Blue Andalusion and we figured out that the two golden reds were BO's. The ones that we could not figure out are this one and the black one, which I believe is an Australorp. being new to this I have been on the internet checking these things out for about six months, four of which were prior to getting the first bird. Once again thank you.

    I would vote light brahma, either hatchery quality or a cross of. They have leg feathering and teh columbian pattern, come in both LF and Bantam.

    I also think light brahma cross. Body type looks like a brahma. Looks like she has a pea comb too.
