    With the dark legs I would guess either a Black Andalusian or Minorca.

    [​IMG] Here's another pic of her. She lays big white eggs and is smaller than the Rhode Island Red and Barred Plymouth Rock pullets the same age.

    I'm not really familiar with either, but I'm leaning toward Mincora. I think Andalusians are much lighter bodied.

    I was thinking Minorca also.

    I just read you said it was smaller than your other chickens. Minorcas are larger birds, Andalusian chickens are a little smaller.

    judging by the size of the comb its no doubt it is one of those.

    Looks like a Black Minorca to me.
