    Awww. What kind of bird is that? 2 of my EEs have that same coloration, but with the pea comb.

    How old is that one? Is it laying eggs yet?

    Definitely a hen. Brown Leghorns can get larger combs and wattles than the average hen. All normal. She looks all girl to me. [​IMG]

    At first I thought Brown Leghorn hen, but no white earlobes.
    So, with the streamlined build and coloring, I now am thinking a game hen.

    funny cause i posted this a month ago and everyone said welsummer cross with who knows what, and young roo about 6 months old. unfortunatly IT is at LEAST 10 months old if not a year and doesnt crow or lay eggs, and after looking at welsummers for hours, ive just decided thats it is exactly that an IT with the feathering of a welsummer hen, but the comb and waddles of a welsummer roo.

    She came from the house we just moved into. The previous owner left her here and well her and what we just found out it is a Rhode Island white mix was the reason my wife and I started getting into chickens. I know she is at 10 months but not laying. She is very protective of our RIW so I assume she is older. They were 2 of 30 left from the previous owner. The only way that I could even possibly think that she could be younger is if one of the 30 hatched her after they were let wild.
