    Hi!

    What is my hen? grey feathers & legs, small comb.
    she's kinda the loner of the group, and she goes to bed early [​IMG]

    She looks like a blue andalusian
     
  5. I'm no pro at andalusions, but that's my guess as well. Check feathersite or google and see if she fits [​IMG]

    Does she have a pea comb? If so, she wouldn't be an andalusian.

    I am thinking cross... Definetly NOT andelusian... have had those... that has a completely different head.... Look at leg color and comb as well as body shape and then just guess... he he.. Good luck with that.

    ok. thanks.

    ive been looking at feathersite - tons of pics!
    i found one finnish type hen that looked similar?
    but i'll check the other type too

    a pea comb is flat, right? hers is small and ripply, but not flat

    :)

    But, andalusian lay white eggs, hers are brown???
    she definately looks like one, though.
