    The young hen in the attached pictures has us stumped. She is 13 weeks old. She came from one of Murray McMurray's "rare breed" specials. Coloration is light brown mixed with a little light gray. Tail feathers and wing tips are light bluish gray, some of the feathers lined with a darker gray. Many thanks![​IMG]

    Looks like a mixed breed to me. I went on the hatchery website and it doesn't look a thing like the breeds they listed. Murray Mcmurrary really hasn't been doing well lately...

    Doesn't look like anything pure to me either. McMurray is notorious for poor quality and mixed birds.

    One of their 'True Blue Whitings.' They are basically mixed breeds that lay blue/green eggs.

    I"m thinking a True Blue also. I'll bet she lays you pretty blue egg. Love her coloring, also.
