I think it's a hen and it looks like a crossbreed.
I agree with you that she is a hen, but I am not an expert on breeds.
Thanks. It's been a while since i have been on here
I would say hen. Going out on a limb here because crossbreeds are so highly variable and there are so many combos to get something to look like that, But I would say it has Golden Laced Wyandotte in it. Alot of my GLW crosses look like that. Possibly to a australorp, jersey giant, black star, etc I am not seeing any barring at all on the bird so that completely throws out dominique and BR, two other common breeds.
Not sure of the age. it was a gift and they didnt know anything about it
Looks like a mutt to me but sure is a pretty one! My guess with those pearl legs and golden colored feathers is that she has some Buff Orpington in her.
Quote:Exactly what I was thinking. Most likely crossed with a Black Australorp, too - Buff and black usually create this color, and the pearly legs would likely keep color as well.
