    I'd say she is a cross...RIR with a Cochin

    really? the woman who sold it to me said she got it from tractor supply as a baby chick but couldn't remember what breed they told her it was.

    i love how her coloring. thought maybe she was a specific breed....

    My Production Reds look very similar to yours... especially around the head and neck... the color of her body is much lighter than my Reds... she is beautiful...

    Her coloring is just like one of GD's Red Cochins. The tail shows it is a cross of some sort.

    Still very pretty. Put her with a Cochin rooster & you will get some pretty chicks.

    I have a NHR that is that exact same color. Maybe that's what she is?

    Edited to add: Just noticed the feathers on her feet. I retract my statement...[​IMG]

    Beautiful coloring!
    I want to agree with Tuffoldhen and Silkiechicken on this one. Not pure Cochin because she doesn't have the rounded tail typical of Cochins, but a high tail instead. Feather on the feet also means she can't be pure RIR or RSL... etc.
    My vote goes to Cochin-RIR X [​IMG]
