    Nope, not a wellie with white ear lobes. She could have brown leghorn in her as she has white earlobes and a floppy comb. Her patterning is really poor, so I'd say she's a mix.

    I was also wondering about her posture, what's up with that? it reminds me of a dog with its tail between its legs
    this is the way she is standing all the time unless she is eating
    always with the head slightly down, and tail down. I don't think she is sick because I kept her apart long enough.
    she has such a pretty tail and she never shows it

    Maybe that is due to the mix of different skeletal structures clashing.
