    Whoever owns the white butt in front of her appears to be a roo.

    Very pretty pullet.

    Do you know what line she is from? She looks like she has some careful breeding. We have a mossy hen, and she resembles her in the face and head structure, like a relative. (Her copper is actually a bit darker than the photo.)

    I can't see your pullet's actual body conformation type (or, how her tail is) or, if she has correctly color/feathered shanks, but her body conformation should look like this:
    [​IMG]

    She has an excellent wide head and strong neck, which tells us she may likely has a better than average body- solid. You can see she has a well-rounded chest. Her hackle looks very good in copper hue and amount of coloring, and her eye color is turning bay, as it should.

    Here's Mossy running in the meadow, see how her body is shaped like a long, slightly sloped brick?

    Show us a side view of your pullet (taken at eye level.) I might be able to determine more then.

    Enjoy your girl!
