    Kinda looks like a Barred Rock to me, but I'm no expert. [​IMG]:) Definitely not a RIR though.

    definitelt not a barred rock, she is red. Could be a sex link. But quite unsure.

    Why are we saying definitely not an RIR? I'd actually guess towards it rather than Barred Rock (which she is definitely not). She is also definitely not an Ameraucana, Araucana, or Easter Egger.

    I'm going with RIR. Or possibly a mix? Where did she come from?

    She came from Ideal. I just want a good egg layer!
    She started out red/brown but her new feathers are grey and white....

    Oh okay- the photos make her look red, not grey and white. Have you taken a look at feathersite? You may be able to identify her from the pics on that site.

    Could you post a better pic of her whole body and in good light so we could see the feather color?

    Quote:I saw the spot on its head too, which confused me, but the way the pic shows for me- there is not even an inkling of black..hmm. Maybe a photo taken outside in natural light would be better.
