I know she's a mix but anyone want to guess what's in that mix?

    This is Roxie and she's just laid her first two eggs, two days in row. I picked her out of a cage with a bunch of different birds mixed together at a chicken swap and I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea what she might be a mix of (just curious!)? Two of our other birds came from the same cage but I made a point of having everyone look very different from each other so they are different from her. I'll post their pics too though just in case that might give some insight into what she might be. The other two are a rooster who appears to be a black sex link and a hen who looks like she has a little EE.

    These are the other two - first Sasha (the one who may have some EE) and then the rooster, Claude, who looks like a black sex link:

    I don't know what she is other than a fine looking pullet! Maybe some barred rock???

    I love it when a Maude goes to a Claude. I had an Andy turn into an Annie. She is a long tailed leghorn and that threw us for a while [​IMG]

    I'm going to say a game hen mix. She's got the build of a game hen. She's so beautiful!

    It's funny but every day she looks more and more "regular" hen-like (I think it's that's she's filling out more). She's really good at flying too - this is her in a tree:

    Also, I don't know if a photo of her when she was a baby would help - here is a before and after pic I did of her:

    I have a multi-colored Java mix who looks just like her from the wings forward, but mine is a bit darker....from the wing back, yours has the color of my Easter Egger?

    Just guessing, but a very nice looking bird!

    Are you sure about the black sex-linked rooster.....I have 4 black sex-linked hens and three different types of Rooster and was wondering what a male chick might look. He has some barred rock looks and some wyandotte looks?

    She's beautiful, but I don't have a clue, what color egg did she lay? Sasha however, I'm going with an EE, ('cause of the leg color) Golden Comet mix and Claude maybe has some Delaware in him.

    This is her egg, it's a very pale tan color:

    I'm definitely not sure about anything with them - they could really be anything at all... I guessed Black Sex Link with Claude because I've seen a couple photos of those roosters that looked like the direction he's going... This is one of the photos I'm talking about:

    I'm pretty sure that Roo is not a black sex link. I have 1 at home, he is black, all black w/ a bleach blonde head, his name is Spike.

    Well I went home and took a few new photos as I think Roxie has really changed a lot over even just the past week. Maude/Claude too. So here are the new pics - these birds could be a mix of anything! [​IMG]
