    She was found and brought to me, but she wants nothing to do with my other hens. My rooster likes her but she just runs from him. She has laid no eggs and has been here about a month. Still trying to figure out what kind of chicken she might be

    The wing color is calling roo, and it looks like the hackle feathers are really thin and long, can't tell about the saddle, do you have a pic of it standing?

    I could be wrong on that though, if I could get a shot of him/her standing and see the tail better [​IMG]

    I am going to say cornish mixed maybe with a barred rock but I doubt it...not sure what the other mixes are but there is definitely some cornish in there...and also I think it looks like a pullet...how old is it...I see no hackle feathers..looks like pullet to me.

    Not sure how old it is, it was found on the side of a highway and they brought it to me. I loved the colors so I let it stay.
