    I can try to get a better pic. I don't know chicken conformation and my daughter is wanting to show this hen. She is a super sweet chicken.
    Thanks.

    Need a closer pic of her standing naturally on the ground to judge her type. In the pic it appears "may just be the lighting" that she has some buff or red leaking in around her head. If so this would disqualifier her for showing. She'd be pet quality.

    [​IMG] beautiful- is she a cochin? she looks like she would do good in shows. but we would need to see a closer pic of her face just in case. all judges are different and sometimes they will say if somethings wrong with your bird on the coop tag.

    Could be a not-great-quality Brown Red Cochin bantam or a Black Cochin bantam with red leakage around its neck. We'll need closer photos to be sure. Depending on how competitively your daughter wants to show, she may or may not be a good show choice.
