    Hi, all! Just getting started with chickens and got my first pullets yesterday. Two red Easter Eggers, one copper Maran, one chocolate Orpington, aaaaaand this mystery bird. Note she has the feathered feet, but doesn't look (to my inexperienced eye) like any of the breeds associated with that trait. Ideas? Thank you! Just reading here has already been so informative.

    She looks like a mix. Can we get a better pic? A profile shot of her standing naturally is best, so we can see her shape and feathering.

    What did the seller say she was?

    Oops, didn't mean to post the same pic twice. Couldn't get a good standing pic, but this is other I meant to attach so you can see her coloring. Seller said he wasn't sure either -- a man of few words, lol.

    Barnyard Mix. But she is a pullet, so that's good news.

    Thanks to everyone for looking! Any ideas what she may be mixed with? It's not a big deal, just natural curiosity.
