    Louieandthecrew I am actually a female!

    Hello again! This is Magnolia. She is now... dead. She was killed by a hawk about a year ago but to this day I think she is the prettiest hen i have EVER had! But, I still don't know what breed she is! Can anyone tell? Here are a couple of pictures of her :
    Tell me if you know!

    Some sort of molted Cochin...? I honestly haven't a clue, I'm terrible at chicken breeds, but she was beautiful

    I will second, or third, the SL or mottled cochin. How old was she when she died? She may not have had a chance to go through a molt or have filled out - that would have showed you her true coloring. Very pretty! So sorry for your loss!

    She was about 4 or 5 months when the hawk got in so she hadn't yet gotten the chance to moult. It would make sence for her to be a cochin of somekind though because I got the other 5 chicks from the same tractor supply co. and one other was a black cochin (last pic, black chick in the middle). So I believe that that's right [​IMG]
