    I thought this might be a White Leghorn but recently some light red/buff color is showing on some feathers. So a mix of some kind? Pullet or roo?

    It looks like a pullet to me. It's possible you have a Tetra Tint. Where did you get her?

    At a local farm. The farmer had pens and pens of hens and roosters, a bunch of chicks in several brooders as well as eggs in incubators. I think he gets them from hatcheries, and also breeds his own. It could be anything!!!
