    Good evening all....I purchased these 2 hens from a poultry tailgate. I was told the black one is a lace wyandotte/ black jersey cross. But the grey one was called a mutt. I believe she has silver lace wyandotte in her, but cannot determine what else. Any clues??

    I think she looks to have some SLW in her......the comb is confusing.....LOL Beautiful though!

    Thanx...I took her because I thought she was very interestingly marked....she is quite stunning...and one of them laid a whitish/grey egg today, but didn't get to see which one did it.

    The second hen looks to be an EasterEgger - yes, a mutt. What color are her legs?

    Then I'd say odds are she's an EE.

    Here are more pictures of Rosabella. Maybe these will be better for identification... she does seem to have the comb of an EE.... and her leg color matches her body color....very pale whitish grey with pink undertones

    The extra toes makes me think a faverolles cross not really sure.

    Okay, so I have come to the conclusion that she is probably a cross of SLW, EE and Faverolle.... seems she has characteristics of all 3 and the gentleman did say she was a mutt and not just a 2 way cross. Thanks for everyone's help on this bird.
