    Hi all,
    We adopted 2 6mo hens from a close relative who could no longer keep their flock. The shop seller told them one of the girls was a Norfolk Grey, but my readings said there is no plummage variation in that breed. Thoughts please! She's very sweet although a bit nervous, and quite large.

    Funny, thats what my mom suggested but I'd wonder why the store would say otherwise. Thanks for the replies!

    You are correct. It looked like a single until I zoomed in.
