    I assume it's mixed? I thought New Hampshire was a darker red, but I'm a newbie here. [​IMG]

    A buff something or other; definitely not a New Hampshire.

    I cannot tell what type of comb it has?

    Does this help any? I thought this might be a little larger photo than the first one... not sure...

    It's not a very large comb. Is it a pea comb?

    I expect she's a mixed breed. She has the shadows of columbian markings, so maybe part delaware or light sussex? Mixed with buff rock or orp... that's my guess and I'm sticking to it! [​IMG]

    Well I have 3 that look just like her - 2 hens and a rooster... well actually, the rooster was killed by my sister-in-law's dog on Thursday. That's why I was trying to figure out what they were. I got them from Ideal as a January Special (no breed stated).

    Thanks for the help!
