    Okay, you guys. I haven't been able to come here as often as I would like. I've been here enough to know this is the place to come for this type of needed help.
    I have a lovely pullet that came straight from the hatchery. I received a variety of breeds and color patterns.
    This one I believe(from what I've gathered here) is splash in color. I think maybe orpington but maybe australorp. I also know I might be way off. So please, let me know what she is.
    I'll be checking back to this thread throughout the day.
    THANK YOU
    Diana

    There aren't many hatcheries that sell BBS Orps and I don't know of any that sell Blue or Splash Australorps. I'm curious which hatchery too. Is the comb single?

    Orps and Australorps both have white skin.

    It could be a wyandotte with the wrong leg color. I think once we know the comb type, that will help. She's very pretty and nice n fluffy. [​IMG]
