    First thought, Egyptian Faymoui. Second would be Silver Campine.

    Thank you for your help, I had no idea what she was, and she came from a local feed store where they purchase their chicks from Ideal.

    Yeah she definitely isn't a Silver Hamburgh but could be an Egyptian Fayoumi or Silver Campine. Google images of both and compare to see what matches best! [​IMG]

    The egyptian fayoumi has speckled legs, where as the campine doesn't. It looks like a campine to me and since it originally came from Ideal that is my vote. So many different birds, lol.
