Here she is next to her new flockmate:



The person I purchased her from said that she came from a mixed batch of "good layer" chicks and wasn't certain which breed she might be.

She's a Hamburg alright but as far as the breed standard gose she is a mighty ugly one.

Her color is no good at all, almost looks mixed in color, but that just could be hatchery stock-e-ness at work, but that does not matter as long as she's a well loved pet. Hammies have such wonderful personalities, a bit flighty but seem to know them self better then other breeds.

Aww, an ugly duckling of Hamburgs, eh?

I was intrigued by her long face. It's also somewhat bare of feathers for whatever reason.

just not what the breed standard calls for.

The face bit could just be she's young?
As long as she seems healthy it should be okay, but loss of feather around the eyes can be a sign of a ill bird, but i am sure that's not the case here.

Here is a link to FeatherSite to the Hamburg page, this is what she should look like:
