    We have this nice female that lays brown eggs and is an excellent mother. We got her in a group marked "rainbow" which later we found was the name the hatcheries give to odds and ends they want to get rid of. Does anyone know what she is? Thanks![​IMG]

    What color are her legs?

    If her legs are a pearly white color, I'm going to say she's a White Orpington.

    If her legs are a yellow color, then she could be a White Plymouth Rock. Or possibly even a White Leghorn, however she seems far to "round" to be a Leghorn.

    She's very pretty. [​IMG]

    White Rock....can't really see her comb structure from this pic but she sure looks like a WR. GREAT breed to have! Good layers, good moms, good foragers, hardy to the max.

    I agree with the White Rock guess...hard to tell but looks like she has yellow legs.

    I would have to say White Rock as well. I have one and she is a hoot! She is my biggest hen, and the biggest pig! She lays nice brown eggs too. Your hen is very pretty! [​IMG]

    She really looks like my White Jersey Giants. All of mine went broody this summer and were excellent momma. One we named Missy and she went broody 3 times. Very devoted

    Chicks are adorable
