    I bought her from a friend originally who bred RIRs and some kind of black chicken and apparently she was the smallest and was being attacked [​IMG]
    I'm not sure how useful the information below is but...

    She laid white eggs
    Started laying very early..i can't remember exactly
    She laid 5+ eggs a week
    She wasn't a broody hen
    She was very friendly but also could be aggressive toward my dog [​IMG]


    Thanks [​IMG]

    The color is RIR, but she has white ear lobes and pale color legs. She must be a mix of some type.

    I would say Red Leghorn but the body type is RIR. Good mix of something...

    I'm thinking neither of the chicken breeds people mentioned. . . First, she lays a white egg, which takes a couple generations of a white layer to get going. Second, that body is very broad, and has a lot of shoulder like a Cornish would. I'm honestly thinking she's got some game behind her. The fact that her comb has practically no points and gamefowl lay very light, almost white eggs. . . I'd say she's at least half (cornish? or something else)

    As rare as Oriental Gamefowl are, I've actually met a person before who claimed to breed Rhode Island Reds. . . . They were Thailand gamefowl crosses.

    I've also known a family who claimed to have Buff Orpingtons. Don't know how they considered them so, because their chickens were Wheaten Asils.

    Her face does look coronish- like to me, Illia.

    She's a cute hen, at any rate.

    Are her eggs white like store eggs or do they have a tint to them? I do agree she looks broad like a Cornish, but she is holding her wings out which for me distorts her figure ( [​IMG] ).
