    When she was younger I asked if anyone knew what she was. Now that she is older do you all have any ideas? she has a single comb red earlobes and pink legs white with black at her neck and on the tail she is about 15- 16 weeks old

    Dont Delawares have yellow legs? The lady I got her from said she didnt know what she was just got eggs from someone and hatched them. So probably a mix. I always wondered if delaware or maybe white rock mix? The legs are what throws me. They have always been pink and she was about 15 days old when I got her.

    Yep, hence: "poor quality". [​IMG] Skin and shank color is part of the breed standard, not all birds will meet it.

    Rocks should also have yellow shanks. Should being the important word there. [​IMG]

    Sussex have pink legs.

    Is the black on her barred or solid?

    Though poor quality birds from hatcheries may be far from the standards, they usually aren't that far. [​IMG]
