    I was given this chicken from a friend, she's very shy. I was wondering what she is and about how old you think she is?

    Also she is a pullet right?

    She was afraid of the camera so I'm sorry for the horrible pictures.
    I'll try to get better pictures soon

    Also do you have any idea what color eggs she will lay?

    If she is a Sumatra she'll lay tinted (off-white or cream) or white eggs. Something about her doesn't seem right for the breed, [​IMG] maybe she is just young. I just don't know.

    She looks exactly like my blue orp pullet did at 12 weeks.

    She's not an orp, she has a pea comb, not a single comb.

    Quote:seems too... "Bulky" and tails pretty short. loads more feathers then i've ever seen on a sumatra as well. but who knows. [​IMG]

    (too much feathers, im referring to around her vent/leg area. most sumatras are "Poofy" around there. )
