    Hi Everyone,

    We just adopted "Barbara" from Chickengiver here on BYC. Any thoughts on her breed? A mix? Thanks in advance for any comments.

    Best,

    Kind of makes me think of a Buff Orpington- Barred Rock cross but I have no idea. She is pretty!

  4. A) barred rock cross of some type (most likely)
    B) cream legbar (they're colored a lot like that, and have a single comb and yellow legs)

    Wait till she lays an egg...then you can take a better guess :D If it's blue, it's likely to be a cream leg bar :D

    Barred rock cross, could be with buff orp. Can we get a profile shot of the whole body?

    How old is the bird? Not sure Barbara is appropriate.....[​IMG]
