    A friend gave us this hen & told us she was a New Hampshire Red. I have looked up pictures of New Hampshire Reds and to me she doesn't look like one. She lays medium size light light eggs almost white that are long with a point (not so round like my RIR & australorp). Does anyone know what breed she is? Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    She looks to be a production red or generic red breed mix because of the comb shape.
    One of the parent breeds had a pea or walnut comb. Possibly Chantecler or Buckeye.

    She's just a mix breed.

    It looks like a black tail hen but also has some markings of a NHR!

    Thank you for your responses. I figured she was a mix of something.
