    I know its a chicken but the type has me stumped.Lady that sold me 8 hens - I don't think she knew anything about chicken breeds.She said this one was a silver laced wyandotte but I'm pretty sure its a leghorn:

    This is the one that has me stumped though:

    I agree, leghorn and andalusian. Hatchery birds don't always have correct leg color or combs, etc.

    I agree on the first but I know that there are some blue leghorns running around so the second might be one or a non standard andalusian

    Well I know for a fact that that is NOT a silver laced wyandotte! I breed wyandottes, and I've never seen a wyandotte that looks like that! :p
     
  8. Wyanndotte??!! Wyandotte??!! NOT wyanndottes.
