    I've got this pretty lady, who has some severe damage from the rooster at her previous place (her head and back is missing pretty much all feathers). She is about 1 - 1.5 yo and I was told that she should lay brown eggs. She is a bantam, a bit on a larger side. Got accepted by my small flock (she is 4th chicken) and seems to be mellow and quiet. I got her broody three days ago, but now she is walking, eating and sleeping with others and really enjoys sitting quietly in different places outside and in the run. Any ideas what breed/mix could she be? Thanks!

    Could be a New Hampshire Red or a Buff Orpington or maybe a Welsummer mix.
    Just a guess.

    With due respect, her legs are not yellow which would rule out a New Hampshire and her color is wrong for a Buff Orpington. She looks like a mixed breed to me.
