    We are trying to confirm what this hen is. We think we have it narrowed down to a Silver Penciled Rock. Are we missing anything?

    What type of comb dose it have? If it's a rose comb it's a Wyandotte if it's a single comb it's a Rock. probably

    With a tail and body like that, I'd personally narrow it also to Dark Brahma, but. . Does she have clean legs? (probably, though. . ) So otherwise I'd say Silver Penciled.

    If she has a pea comb and feathered feet, then she's a Dark Brahma

    If she has a single comb and clean legs, she's a SP Rock

    If she has a rose comg and clean legs, she's a SP Wyandotte.

    It's hard for us to see the comb in the photo.

    I agree with the Dark Brahma opinion. Does she have feathered legs/feet?
