    Hello! We recently got a few new hens and are having trouble with finding the breed of my little lady. Her name is Lief. Thanks!

    The pictures don't really tell me enough. I can't see what type of comb she has, or what colour her legs are, so a clear picture showing all that will definitely help us determine breed of your girl :)

    When my two black bantams were a bit younger...they are 3 1/2 months old now....everyone on here thought Black Dutch and I even sent some photos to a man that used to show the Dutch and he told me it was. Now their earlobes are growing and the white is beginning to spread over their faces. They had blue ears when younger but no white around their heads. Both the pullet and roo had a white flight feather but that has now gone, too. "Puck", the roo, decided one day that he liked me and was going to be my friend. I was cleaniong a pen and he came over and jumped on my arm. Now everytime I leave the house by the back door he comes running to get treats, pets, and a nice sleeping place. He is the sweetest bird I have. This morning I was going to my first buy, sell, trade event and was opening the door to their pen to catch and get my chickens ready to go. I was standiing straight up and suddenly I had a chicken on the top of my head. It was "Puck", my white-faced Black Spanish.

    Does your chicken have any blue around its ears?
    Where did you get her??
