    Reminds me a bit of a Sulmtaler, but I think they should have white ears.

    My first guess would be a mix, but I'm not all that familiar with Australian breeds.

    What color are her legs? If they're a slate/willow color then my guess is an Araucana Mix, since Aussie Araucanas are crested and tailed. She's very pretty anyways! :)

    X2. Neither am I. She may well be pure bred, just a breed we do not have here in the US.

    The term "breeder" is often loosely used. Maybe the breeder just hatches mixed breed birds for fun.

    Sorry, he breeds his birds to be of a show standard keeping them segregated and he sells his 'pure' fertilized eggs for a living. I assumed thats what a breeder meant. I know nothing about breeds but we did buy eggs off him so we would have nice purebreds :)

    She could be a purebred, as someone said earlier different countries have different types of breeds. But sometimes accidents happen and Roos or hens can get into other pens, hens do carry sperm for up to at least 3 weeks. Or he coulda been dishonest, it is hard to tell.
    Either way, if you are happy with her, then that is what counts! :)
