    I thought I had one rooster and than yesterday I posted a pic of another one and it is indeed a rooster so that makes two. Now I may be over paranoid, but is this one too?

    Looks like an Ancona maybe? Definately a hen, though.[​IMG] Her tail feathers and saddle feathers are all rounded.

    It almost has to be a mix with the color of the legs. I didn't see that before. It would help if we knew how old it is.

    Quote:That looks like a younger version of my ancona. The may get a little larger then flop to one side. Theyre good egg layers in my limited experience. Nice white large eggs [​IMG]
    edited to add pic of my ancona
