We call her fingers for obvious reasons, poor thing. She was thrown in when we got our white leghorns and I didn't have the heart to say no. She does great despite the deformity even digging for yummy worms. She's bantam sized, lays a light brown small egg almost every day, and I don't know if this matters or not, but has recently started to growl! We live on a large lake and the first time I heard it, I looked up expecting a boat to pull into our dock! Lol.

I could be wrong, but she looks like a mixed breed to me, with no breed really standing out. Where did you get her and the white leghorns from?

We got them from some local people who were moving and couldn't keep them anymore. 9 leghorns and "fingers". The lady wasn't sure of the breed, but said to just take her or she would have to be put down.

Cute little mixed breed hen


Growling may mean she's heading toward a broody spell. You'll need to decide if you're going to let her set or break her, if/when that happens.
