    I'm trying to figure out what my girl might be! She is about 16 weeks old and very sweet and friendly. Any help is appreciated and if she's a mutt that's cool too, I just think it would be neat to know what she is :)[​IMG]

    She looks like either a Mottled Java (but Javas are kind hard to find), Ancona, or Exchequer Leghorn ( though her legs are slate and not yellow and her comb is pretty small). Since her legs are slate colored I would lean nearer to a Mottled Java. Where did you get her? [​IMG]

    I got her from Dan Probst at Bageniece farms near Dallas, Tx. He actually sold her to me as a "speckled sussex" which obviously she isn't lol

    She's a Mottled Java. If she was an Exchequer Leghorn or an Ancona, she would have yellow or white legs.

    Anconas and leghorns (no matter the color) have white earlobes and this one does not so she's a mottle java

    I hadn't even though of the earlobe color. I was just going off of the leg color, but the earlobe is definitely another indicator that this bird is a Mottled Java.
