    I have an Arizona Brown Chicken that I need help identifying. As a chick she looked like an EE with the chipmunk stripes. But she has yellow legs and no muffs. She also has a really flat comb; like a raised bump. She is about 3 months old. Thank you!!

    This is a very interesting bird. Where did you get her?

    My first reaction is that she might be a Modern Game Hen from her coloring, stance, and bodyshape. But her white legs are really throwing me off, as all the varieties that I know of have slate legs.

    She might be a mix, but to be honest, I'm not an expert on Modern Game varieties.

    Pretty girl for sure though, with the Gold Duckwing patterning!

    That is a rose comb brown leghorn. I have two 13 week olds that look the same.

    Did you happen to get them from mcmurray? look them up on that site.

    Quote:Now this is why I LOVE love love BYC. I had no idea that variety existed! Thanks for posting and sharing your insight. Although, I also have to say 'curse you!' for introducing me to another variety of chicken to my 'must have' list. [​IMG]
