    So I was given this new bird because it didn't get along with a friends larger flock. She has adjusted well to my girls, but I have no idea if it is a particular breed or mixed breed, anyone know? Previous owner thought it might be a Rhode Island Red.

    Looks a little like a Welsummer, especially the breast feathers.....probably some mutt/mix.
    A lot of chickens are mixes or crosses.
