The woman we bought this hen from told us as near as she could figure this was a grey Jersey.
What do you think?

Orpingtons have white skin/legs I think. From the body type and the look of the head I'm going to guess Blue Australorp, but they aren't very common, and they have pink/white bottoms of the feet..maybe a mix?

Do I see a little gold in the neck? I'm thinking blue copper Marans if it's a pure bred anything. Mutts come in lots of colors too.

Blue Orpingtons have slate legs with pale whitish grey bottoms to their feet. Could be a hatchery quality Blue Orp. Don't see the same gold in the neck that you see, debid. Though I am interested in the "mutt" theory

So we will go with Mutt then. We were thinking maran or orpington as well maybe mixed with a laced wyandotte.
