    I have a mystery hen, a bantam named Clover. Any idea on what her breed might be, or is she a mutt?[​IMG]

    Look at her comb, it's a single. Wyandottes have a rose comb.

    wyandottes can come off with a single comb ( mostly this happens in hatchery stock) but she still isn't because her legs are the wrong color

    Clovers legs are bluish-grey, you can see that in the pic a little. I could get a pic of her legs if you need it?

    What about a Sicilian Buttercup, just with a single comb?

    Sicilian Buttercups have bluish greenish grey legs. And the feather pattern is rather alike to a Sicilian Buttercup's.

    Yes, she looks alot like a buttercup pattern wise but she doesn't have that trademark buttercup feature.....that wonky buttercup comb. She looks like a mixed breed to me. Very pretty hen!

    Nothing new to add on the breed guessing, but she is beautiful! Pretty name, too.
