    We purchased her from a feed store that got their chickens from Mt. Healthy. She's almost 20 weeks now ...not laying, as yet.

    She was sold to us as an Australorp but what's with the orange feathers?

    Thanks for your ideas! [​IMG]

    I agree that she looks like a sexlink Black which is a cross between a barred Rock and RIR. Should be a great layer.
