    She looks like a patridge wyandotte to me...It's a little hard to tell from the angle in the photo, but if that is a.rose comb (which it looks like in the photo) and the patterning in the feathers, she is a partridge Wyandotte.

    Barnvelders have straight combs.
    Brahmas have pea combs and feathered legs.

    Looks like a Partridge Plymouth Rock to me. A Brahma would have feathered legs, and a Partridge Wyandotte would have a rose-comb (this bird appears to have a single-comb). Barnevelders have similar coloring, but those that I have seen lack the red streaking through the hackle feathers that your hen (and other Partridge-colored birds) have.

    I think that she is a Partridge Plymouth Rock. Barnavelders have a slightly different color pattern (a little darker), Brahmas have feathered legs, and Wyandottes should have rose combs. She could still be a Wyandotte, though, as occaisonally you get single comb Wyandottes .

    Hi Sengge and in case no one has welcomed you yet: [​IMG]

    Definitely a Partridge (Plymouth) Rock

    Just to be clear, are you are located in the US?

    What colour eggs does she lay? If they are dark, she's a Barney or even a welsummer. Do I see slate colouring on the feet?
