    My neighbor was getting rid of this "escape artist" chicken and
    offered her to me. (His run is electric fenced in with no top)

    Before I got there, he said she was a leghorn.. well, she is
    definitely no leghorn. I thought Australorp at first because
    her egg was the color of my Australorp's eggs... but her legs
    are the wrong color.

    Is she a Cornish Rock maybe? She has to be a meat bird..
    check out those legs! And she LOVES to eat. First thing she
    did when I put her in her dog crate was slip slowly out of my
    grasp and start eating while half in and half out of the crate.
    She is not too skittish and fairly easy to catch.

    We named her Lucky..
    because she is "Lucky" that he didn't "dispatch" her.

    Lucky will be a year old in about 2 weeks.


    here she is with the flock.. she is on the bottom right.

    Not a Cornish cross, that looks like a White Plymouth Rock.

    I agree, looks more like a white rock than a cornish.
