    I've had this hen since spring 2009 and she's really relaxed and chubby and fluffy. It takes forever to catch her, but once I do, she practically melts in my hands! Very sweet. Her name is Peanut, but the way.

    Anyways, everyone keeps telling me that she's a Buff Orpington, but I know she isn't. Here's some pics. Can anyone help me identify the breed? Or is she a mixed breed?

    In that last picture, she's the hen next to the rooster.

    So! Any ideas? I'm thinking she's a Cornish, but I don't know... Oh, and by the way, these are the most recent pics I have of Peanut and they're from when she was six or seven months old. Except for the last pic. In that, she's almost a year old. Anyways, I need help!!

    Looks like a buff orp to me. Is she from a hatchery?

    I would guess she's a Buff Rock, or a Buff Rock or Buff Orpington cross (she can't be purebred Buff Orpington because she has yellow legs).

    She's not a Cornish, those have big thick legs and hard tight feathering.

    Awww, thanks! She is pretty (and cute!).

    Yes, she's from a hatchery. She and dozens of other chicks were all mixed up in tubs. Soooo... that's why I don't know Pea's breed.

    Yes, I thought she was a mixed breed. I don't know, but maybe she's an official breed, but I'm almost positive that she's a mixed breed. [​IMG]

    Why are you so set on her being a cross breed ? Cross brees wouldnt be that solid buff so shes either a pure hatchery Buff Rock, or a hatchery Buff Orp with yellow leggs as when I ordered Buff Orps from Privett, two of them have yellow leggs which would basicly just make them a Buff Rock according to hatchery standards as there isnt much difference in the body types of hatchery birds. And she would still have white leggs if she was a BO X Buff Rock becuase yellow leggs are recessive.

    So she would be a hatchery quality Buff Rock. Not a cornish for sure, wrong tupe and comb for a cornish.​

    Yes, I'm positive now that Peanut is a Buff Rock. Where I got her, there were six categories for chicks: Reds, Rocks, Leghorns, and some other things that I forgot. But anyways, yes, I'm sure that she's a Buff Rock now. Thanks for your help, everybody!
