    I have a hen that I got mixed in with some white leghorns. (She herself was supposed to also be a white leghorn). She is smaller in size than my leghorns, and instead of having a poofy chicken tail, she has a smooth appearance. Almost comparable to a dove. She is all white with blue feet and her feathers under her neck on her chest are a little brown. Anyone know what she could be?

    All my other birds pick on her, and she is so very sweet. Loves to be pet, eats out of your hand, etc. I've already looked at pictures of the blue footed French hen and other than the foot color, don't look like her.

    Oh wow really does look like her! She doesn't have any crest on the top of her head really. She is about 5 months old though. I'll try to take a picture of her when I go outside later.

    What hatchery did she come from? That can really help narrow things down. Pics help, too.

    She may be an old English or Dutch cross.

    She laid a small very light beige egg yesterday, if that helps anyone!
