    I am guessing she has some runner in her. She has a fairly fine body- and also I am considering the leg placement. But she also have a relatively short neck. With colouring similar to a buff orpinton she is a lovely lookig girl .

    She looks like a buff runner mix. Or a khaki runner mix.

    Such a pretty girl obviously needs her very own special name........runner, buff and khaki campbell were mentioned..........she kinda favors the color of a dun horse...............I got it!!!! She is a Galloping-Who-Dun-What?? [​IMG]

    She was supposed to be a Runner. I got six runners- four look like lesser quality faun & white runners and two came out a mystery.
    She has a lovely personality and disposition, is a good forger, more demure, quieter, calmer and lays smaller eggs than the other runners.

    I would like to breed her this spring but not to my drake- not sure what to cross her with? I like her look, disposition and smaller egg size.
