    So yesterday I posted a pic of my Langshan hen and found out she is a he. He is the quietest, gentlest, just want to eat and poop kind of guy. I have this girl who is the smallest, loudest, bossiest, will push the Langshan out of the way to get to the oatmeal kind of girl. What breed is she?? And egg color? Possible age? She was also a rescue chicken (Small light gray one)

    Can you get a close up of her head. Egg color can usually be determined by ear lobe color. The amount of bleaching in the hen can also help with her age. Also a pic of her wing being displayed can also help lead to age. I mainly just want to lo0ok at the primary wing feathers. I'm not sure on the breed.

    She is super hard to catch. Still skittish but getting better. Here is head shot. I will try a wing shot later when i give them their afternoon snack.

    I think she looks like some type of game cross, and will probably lay light brown/tan eggs.

    well if she has yellow feet bottoms I think she might be a blue sumatra, Sometimes the blues end up red faced specially if they are from a hatchery

    Agreed (blue old english game). Still not sure on the comb, though, looks like a rose comb with three ridges, so red-faced Sumatra could also be correct.
