    Here is a photo of the latest addition to our little flock, a stray that a neighbor found in his garage. I'm guessing that she is a young Brahma hen. What do the rest of you think? She's much smaller than our 6 month old Blue Orpingtons.

    She looks like a Buff Brahma. I have one named Caroline. Can't tell if she's a cross without a full body picture, but she's very pretty! With both of us also having Blue Orps, our flocks are looking very much alike now, LOL!

    Cynthia, wow, your hen is beautiful. I hope ours, Brownie, looks like that! I will try to get a full-body shot of her on the ground in the next couple of days. We've been holding her when she's out of her pen so that she doesn't dash off. She's also missing some feathers; no doubt she has a story to tell. So far I keep her separate from the other two since she's brand new.

    Thank you.

    Does she have feathers on her legs?

    If not, are her legs olive colored? Since she lacks much in the form of wattles, she might be an Easter Egger.

    She does not have feathers on her legs, and her legs are kind of a olive/mustard color. Do you think she may be an Easter Egger? Do the two breeds look alike? When I get another photo, I'll post.

    We found the chicken's rightful owners, who turn out to be some other neighbors. They said this little hen, who is a Golden Laced Wyandotte, must have flown over their fence. She's a sweet little bird, and we enjoyed her weeklong stay with us!

    Upon first glance I thought EE, as they don't always have a muff/beard. If she has clean, greenish legs, you probably have an EE. She is pretty!

    She's pretty!!! I am constantly amazed at the number of "stray" chicken finds posted on this board!!!! I guess when you live in a neighborhood that kind of odd thing would never happen but it seems someone on here "finds" a chicken at least once a week,!! Another benefit of living in the country I guess..... sigh...[​IMG]
