    This is my hen Baby. I don't know what she could be a mix of, I got her off Craigslist. She is such a sweetheart and I LOVE her friendly personality. I was wondering what any of you thought she might be mixed with. I was thinking wyandotte, possibly bantam? She is really short, just as small as my 16 week old ISA Brown pullets. She lays light brown large eggs. Thank You!

    Here's Baby

    Look like light colored sex-links, or second gen links.

    How do you suppose they got Rose Combs? Even second generation sex links would still have single combs I'd think.

    An EE Roo is an Easter Egger, they are the generic Ameraucana that the hatcheries try to pass off as pure bred.

    Could have been SL crossed with RC. Hard to tell. But Baby does have a single comb, right. That is what I see in the first 3 pics.

    So if I'm trying to breed for something similar, I might be okay crossing a Buff Orpington to a Silver laced Wyandotte?
