    The wonderful lady I bought her from said she was a California White.

    I don't think so... She has white feathers on her legs. She lays a medium sized off-white to light tan egg.

    She will fight with anything that gets in her way and she is VERY flighty. There is no catching or holding this hen. She is supposed to be about 22 weeks old, but I'm thinking she is much older.

    What breed is she?

    I'll tell you my guess later.

    Yes I can see it, the only guess that I have is a mix. I also am not very good at identifying sooooo maybe someone else will come along and have a better answer [​IMG]

    Could it be a cross between a California White and a Porcelain D'uccle?
