    We ordered RIR and Blue Wyandotte's but she is in a league all herself. I think in the end we ended up with Buffs and Gold Wyandottes but alas, Katy is the only one we don't know.

    Any ideas

    Legs are black rest is white, she's still young here, born the last week of July 2014

    Very beautiful interesting girl you have there. Can you tell me if she has a pea comb or straight because it looks like she has a pea comb from the pictures...which doesn't make sense if she is an Austrawhite, which is my first guess.

    I should also have said, if she does have a pea comb, then my next guess would be EE although the pure white ones are very rare and she does have wattles so that doesn't 100% match up either.

    RoosterCrow, HensDeliver
    Her comb isn't fully in. I'm stumped until then I guess. I'm trying to look in my albums to see if I have another view, most of my girls combs are not fully in yet.
    Thank you

    Where did you get her? Hatchery or private breeder? Looks like her legs are green.

    She looks like a mixed breed to me, not necessarily an AustraWhite. The AustraWhites I've seen all have more black feathers on them, plus a larger comb. Where did you get her from?

    I purchased her from a chicken farm in CT
    I asked for RIR and Blue Wyandotte's

    This is what she said her breeds were, so I keep looking at Katy and wandering/wondering through her list.
    Rhode Island Red
    Barred Rock
    Araucana
    Dark Brahma
    Light Brahma
    Black Australorp
    Sussex
    Welsummer
    Buff Orpington
    Jersey GIant
    Blue Cochin
    Polish
    Golden Laced Wyondotte
    Lakenvelders
    Brown Leghorn
    Buff Brahma
    Salmon Faverolle
    Mille Fleur Bantam
    Blue Laced Red Wyondotte
    Blue Andalusia

    Thanks for your help, I just wanted to figure out her breed so I could be sure I was caring for her correctly

    Well, I do not see blue Wyandottes on her list. I suspect her Araucanas are really hatchery EEs, which means they are mixed breeds. Breeding those could result in just about anything. That could explain your pullet.
