    I bought this lovely lady at an auction, along with her four babies. I'm suspecting she might be a Spangled OEG hen, but I'm fairly new to chicken ownership.

    Of course, she may be a mix, but any input welcome!

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the quick reply! I'm wondering about her coloring. She is only white with black (with a green sheen). Most of the spangled pics I've found online include some reddish brown. I don't know if that matters or not. Her babies have brown on them, but I don't know what the rooster(s) looked like.

    Perhaps she is a mottled OEGB? She's adorable!
