    I've been looking all over the internet (and on BYC) for a hen that looks similar to this one.

    My immediate guess was Swedish Flower Hen, but I'm not sure if they ever get the pea combs...[​IMG] Let me know if I was right or close.

    Flower hens are mottled, she isn't.


    She looks like an American Game cross.

    My first thought was an American game x cubalaya or even an easter egger x leghorn due to the head shape, large comb/whitish earlobes

    she has some EE with the comb and the lack of wattle and some leghorn with those huge ear lobes. kind of an odd accumulation of face features
