    So I've been told this is a buff orpington when I got her. I've had buffs before and they were fluffy with the typical (puffy butt) this one looks scrawny and not even close to the size or "puffiness" as my RIR or astrolourpe. My other buffs where smaller than my cuckoo maran so I expected her to be smaller she's also very oddly colored. Any insight? Oh she's also widely scared of people. My other 2 are relatively okay and even come to me first thing in the morning (they apparently get all high and mighty during the day and are too good for me later on lol)[​IMG]

    She looks like a mixed breed, maybe with Old English Game. Where did you get her?

    That is definitely not a Buff Orpington. Could you get some better pictures?

    I can get some better pictures later. They are in their coop raining like crazy here. I got her from a lady that was selling them and has many chickens as well as horses cows and donkeys. She was very cream when I got her and now has a lot of red in her.

    Here is one of her at a few weeks old. I don't mind what she is really, I'm not worried about breed names just if she would be a good egg layer since that's all they are for. Maybe knowing what she is will help me better with her. But she is absolutely terrified of people even when we tried to hold her like the others when they were younger. I don't even push her now I'm scared I'll give her a heart attack.

    Has the body shape of a leghorn or old english game as mentioned above.
