    This is a free "rare" breed chicken that we received with our McMurray order last fall. I have looked at chick pictures and hen pictures but I cannot match her. She lays darker brown eggs than do my Asutralorps. We love her and I plan to set one of her eggs this afternoon in the bator. We shall see...

    For the most part she looks like our New Hampshire Reds (not from McMurray) but her head/neck feathers are much darker...

    Hope you guys can help!

    Okay, Here is her chickie picture (Nov 2008)

    And her all grown up (May 2009)
