    Looks similar to an Iowa Blue, so possibly an IB mix. Iowa Blues go broody, especially in warm weather, but there could be a different breed. Here are some of my purebred Blues for a comparison photo. I've had some with larger combs, and some with more of a black penciling going into a salmon/red. (Please ignore the 2 RIRs in the picture)

    Thanks! If your hen is an Iowa Blue, they have a really cool history I suggest checking out. (Legend claims that they're part Chinese pheasant....) [​IMG]
