    Greetings from Sacramento (well, actually Citrus Heights, but what's a few freeway miles?) I just finished my coop, and inherited two hens from some neighbors. One is a New Hampshire Red, and the other...well, she looks like a Silver Laced Wyandotte, but she has feathers on her feet, and they don't. She is sweet tempered and was a family pet. I call her Schweetie.

    The former owner can't remember what type she is. Can anyone identify her?
    The two of them are funny and have already given me 5 eggs in a week. I think the Red is producing all the eggs, but it's hard to tell.


    Any help is appreciated! Thanks

    [​IMG] from ohio! its really hard to guess a breed, but im going to guess she is a brahma crossed with something that carries a silver laced or silver duckwing pattern. possibly a cuckoo pattern but leaning towards the first 2.
