    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]A coworker today gave me two pullets from her parents' farm because the parents are moving to assisted living and she's got to find homes for their chickens, which all just run loose everywhere. She has no clue what breed these two are. She says she thinks this one is around 3 months old. Any guesses on what breed or breeds she is?[​IMG]

    I have this identical bird it is an astrolorp mix I bought it from an auction so I don't know what she is crossed with. My girls name is Olive and she is super sweet.

    Thanks y'all! I always thought Australorps have sort of long necks and this pullet seems to have a really short one, but maybe that's just the angle I've photographed her. They have some Black Copper Marans and Barnevelders on their farm (before they became so ill they were really into their poultry) so I'm hoping she may have one or both of those breeds in her makeup.
     
  5. Well, this is one of my Australorps Herki
