    Hello all!

    So I posted my hen on here awhile ago when she was still young to see what breed you thought she was. I am well aware she isn't a pure breed lol. I was hoping you can take a look and give it a whirl. I also know she is a hen because I was gifted my first egg last night! Thoughts and opinions welcome! [​IMG]

    Gravy bowl body shape, rose comb and partial lacing say one parent was likely a Wyandotte. Mixed with what, I got nothing [​IMG]. But what a nice mix, she's so pretty!

    Im thinking wyandotte mixed with cream legbar or a old english game breed because the colors looking striking familiar especially with its high tail feathers.
    Pretty bird

    I was thinking GLW crossed with a light sussex. She is such a stunner though that should be a breed in itself

    Thank you all so much for your insightful thoughts! She is definitely my prettiest hen and a complete diva. I adopted her from a farmer who had MANY different breeds on the farm so there is no telling![​IMG]

    The tail is so upright - kinda resembles Fayoumi or Dandarawi tails - the pretty lacing probably a Wyandotte. Barnyard mixes can be either blah or stunning like this one. Is Diva what you named her [​IMG]?

    I'm seeing a lot of Wyandotte influence as well.
