    i am not sure she is even a rock. Her legs aren't very yellow. She may be part penciled, but the head is too light. pretty bird however.

    Quote:her head isn't quite as light as it looks there, they kept fidgeting so getting a picture was tricky. Compared to my old photos of my RIR her legs where looked a similar colour and have turned out yellow. The breeder shows her birds so I'm pretty certain it is a rock. Here's another pic where she's giving me the evil eye.

    I'd say she's a cross.

    This is a silver penciled rock:
