    She is different from the rest. Was the biggest for a while and picks on others. Now at 3 months she is one of the smaller, but still picking on others. [​IMG]

    Looks like a mix to me. Or possibly an Easter Egger? (or even an EE mix?)

    do you know what color eggs she lays?

    Thanks. She's not laying yet. Only 3 months old. This is the mom with rooster in question. No idea who dad is. The neighbor has at least 6 roosters of different breeds. Not sure what she is either. Or the black and white one in front.[​IMG]

    The chicks are mixed breeds. Mom looks like a D'Uccle.

    I'm pretty sure the hen is a Rhode island red. She is loud, sweet, cold hearty, let's me pick her up and lays an egg nearly every day. She fits the descriptions I've read.[​IMG]

    Looks like a New Hampshire. She's not the rich, deep mahogany red of a Rhode Island Red.

    this hen could be a hatchery New Hampshire, or a mixed breed. Rhode Island Reds are a solid, dark mahogany color. She's lighter colored and has variation on her feathers, which RIR do not have.
