I’m trying to figure out the breed of this hen. In April we bought this bird and two other Blues (which we no longer have).
Two were bought at the feed store as Blue Wyandotte and one as a Sapphire Gem/Plymouth Rock.
The Sapphire Gem seemed fairly obvious, longer and leaner but I never was sure after they mixed in with the other chicks.
I recently saw a photo of a Blue Orpington and it looks a LOT like this last Blue I have. Her lacy, fluffy saddle feathers never jived with the photos of BW I’ve seen.
I’d be grateful for any thoughts!
