    That's ultraviolet. She had a couple of scratches from the fox and I didn't want my girls to pick at it.

    I want to say she's a hatchery buff orpington. Does she have feathering on her legs?

    Wow, I've never seen a hatchery BO that light before. Could she be a BO/WO cross? Poor little thing, glad she's got a good home.

    Could be one a red sex link variety... Cinnamon Queens can get light like that.

    Are you certain a fox did that or was there a roo that was riding regularly?
