    Quote:Makes sense to me. Has white legs instead of yellow, so it can't be a Columbian Rock or Delaware (even though they are barred columbian, but it could have been a poorly marked one [​IMG])

    In other words - I agree [​IMG]

    I would guess 12 week old pullet. But that is just a guess, as it's impossible to tell without some clues through a picture.

    Yep, got to be a light Sussex. Can't be more than 3 1/2 months old probably much younger since the comb is still so pale and tiny.

    Thanks just received this hen with no information. Thought it was a light sussex but wanted to be sure. Thought the approx age might be more obvious to people with experience with hens (not me) so thanks for the help again.
