In the Brooder
- Oct 1, 2012
Rescued a small white hen a few days ago, large red single comb, blue-grey feet; lays large white eggs with slight pink tint. Very docile. Seems pretty tame, but was very dehydrated and hungry; she's being quarantined away from my flock for a couple weeks. Thought maybe it was the Canadian variety of White Bresse, but her comb is much larger than a lot of pictures I've seen of them. I initially thought it was a small rooster because of the large comb, but no spurs or pinned hackles, plus I got the first egg this morning. (I'm in Calif., btw) Will try and post a photo when I can. Never seen anything like it at my local feed stores. Ideas?
