    I bought (her?) at a swap because I thought (she?) was pretty. The people that I bought her from said she was a mix but didn't say what she was mixed with. Also if you could give me any info on him/her after you figure out the breed that would be great too. Thank you.

    When I try to look up any info it brings up "Sage & Garlic- rubbed", "Rosemary Lemon", "Grilled", "Roasted", "Stuffed". I'm just trying to find more info on them. I don't want to "eat" her. Are these good to raise and keep as pets?

    She's a White Laced Red Cornish. Not the best layers, but tend to be really good broodies. Excellent foragers.

    I'm also thinking white laced red cornish, or at least mostly. If the sellers said she was a mix, she may well be, but I do think that's a good percentage of her ancestry.

    They're not the Cornish Cross meat birds, they're also known as Indian Jungle Fowl. One of the ancestor breeds of the Cornish Cross, but not the same thing. She'll be a decent layer, a good forager and a great broody momma if you're so inclined to hatch chicks next year.

    I'd say Cornish mix, but she looks mostly Cornish. Possibly from someone's color project stock.

    Yeah cornish, if mixed with anything, it will probably be aseel, or game hen.
