    I have this sweet hen that looked different than all the rest that I could choose from, but I can’t figure out for the life of me what breed. Her feathers are orangish-brown and black. She already towers over the chicks I brought home with her. Help please!

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    I think a better photo is going to be needed and a few more weeks development as well probably before we can id it.
    How old is it? That comb looks pretty big for being a relatively young chick and I would be concerned it might be a "he" and not a "she"

    Just a couple weeks, got them at Atwood’s. She was technically “sexed out” and has a band on her wing, which obviously means she’s a female, but maybe they got it wrong.

    I have been to Atwoods before and they don't ever list the breeds of their chickens I don't think they really know what breeds they are. I am not really sure, a better pic would be helpful, it has an easter egger face but a single comb and the body wouldn't really make it an easter egger
