    I'm far from an expert. But the bottom photo sure looks like my Spanish Andalusian. Slim body, upright tail. She looks young. Like she's not laying eggs yet.

    Mine are very curious and love to forage. Not at all fond of being held. I'm JUST getting them used to eating out of my hands. They are 20 weeks old.

    I write that only to see if her personality matches.

    Mine hunker down on the floor in the corner instead of staying on the roosts we have. I don't know if it's normal but i think my problem is because the roosts are in the wrong place in the coop. I've been planning on setting up new roosts for them soon though. Hopefully that'll get them off the floor.

    Ohhh she's very pretty [​IMG] Sorry i don't know the breed but would love to know too. My flocks not mixed, just australorps. I hope to obtain some silkies and a couple other breeds over the next few months though hopefully
