    I just adopted this little hen. I was hoping for some help finding out what breed she is. Im just about 99% sure she's a hen but have no clue what breed. I would be greatful for any input.[​IMG]

    Might be a silver sebright, but need a shot of the comb to confirm that

    The pattern on the head looks more like a Wyandotte.

    If there's no visible comb (you would see points if she had a single comb) it's most likely a Silver Laced Wyandotte.

    I have three silver laced, two gold laced, and one splash laced red myself. All raised from chicks. Nice breed.

    Im excited to have a new breed to add to our little flock. I have 4 RIR 2 buff/cochin 6 Sunrise orpingtons (buff over rir) 2 Australorps 2 Amaruacanas 2 Amaruacana & Copper Marian mix 3 Buff Orpingtons. But I have too many Roosters. I will be cutting my flock down by 8 due to the roos.

    Looks like a cute Silver Laced Wyandotte to me.
