    Mixed breed. Possibly with some Silkie as I see a small crest.

    Is there a known population of stray/feral chickens in the area? If not, might want to round her up, someone could be missing her.

    A pretty one?
    Black around base of neck almost doesn't look real...
    ....line between black and grey is too straight

    he only took the one photo, sadly! the line does look really stark, i agree--wondering if it's some kind of blue orpington/bluebell mix
