    We adopted most of our first flock (Saturday) from one woman. She tried hard to get us one of each breed she had but she didn't know what breeds they were.

    We identified all but one and she's the one everyone asks about. The lady who had her said it seemed like they were all molting but to be honest, I'd be shocked if this wasn't a stress molt. (Insert sad face here...they had a horrible life before...) They look better being here 3 days.

    Aaaaanyway, we need help identifying our grey girl. I tried to get some good pics for you!! please help us newbies!!!

    I've been watching and the ones we have aren't bugging each other at all. I wanted to make sure that they'd be ok with the one hen I got from another coop. The previous owner had SO MANY in a small run I wouldn't be surprised if she was pecked to death. They're all looking healthier already. Unless you mean she's plucking her own..in which case I have no idea. Why would she do that herself (if she were)?



    Thanks for the IDing everyone!! I think you're all correct :)
