    The hen is a mix of mixes, most likely. No specific breed jumps out.

    I'll bow to Misha's statement of silver pencilled cockerel.

    Thank you for the replies. Both were bought from a hatchery in a order of assorted heavy breeds straight run. So the mixed breed hen kind of surprises me. She is a nice calm hen that is very friendly though.

    Maybe, but pioneer wasn't on the list and neither was the silver penciled rock.
