    We adopted this hen in July 2011. She was a day old when we adopted her. New to chickens, we just adopted her and she became part of the flock of 19 chicks we raised this summer. They told me that she was a barred rock or barred rock crossed with dorking. But she seems to look more like a Silver Cuckoo Maran. Any one care to share their opinion??? We created a flock of beauties that come from a EE and would love to see a chocolate colored egg thrown in the mix.

    See pictures below.

    She looks like a BR mix. Those legs aren't the right colouring, but besides that, she looks just like my BR pullet.

    Her bars don't really look like bars to me. She looks more like she is laced.
