    Hi all can anyone tell me what breed this hen might be ? I brought her a couple days back as just a mixed breed and I think she's just a gorgeous young lady

    She is a beauty!
    The rose comb and body shape make me think she has some Wyandotte in the mix, but Wyandottes also have yellow legs and hers aren't. By the way, does she have scaly mites on her legs? I can't see them well but they just look funky.

    Other than the Wyandotte, I got nothing. I'd bet there is some partridge colored bird back there somewhere, just from my own backyard breeding throwing kinda similar colored birds. One reason I love breeding mixes, you get pretty surprises like this!

    Pretty girl, the color patterns the mixes have are so interesting, wish we could duplicate them. She does look like she has scaly leg mites. https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/mites-lice-treatment-and-prevention is a link to the BYCs Learning Center Article on treating them. You might also want to trim her toe nails. You can clip them with dog clippers, like a dog's, just take a little off at a time and watch you don't quick her, or grind or file them if you'd rather.

    Oh wow!! Thank you for all the advice I never knew I could cut her nails I thought they were long
    Il do that tonight as she settles to make it easier
    Thanks also I'll read up on that and treat it!
    Shouldn't have put so much faith in the breeders advice I guess :/
    But lucky I have so much on Hand with BYC!!

    This is my tiny sweet Pogo.
    Any guessers or knowers on her breed? She's a teeny tiny little girl. I don't think she even weighs a pound, and if so, that's it. And she is full grown.[​IMG]

    KilnChick it might be best to start your own thread. It will get too confusing on this thread talking about two different birds which is not polite to the original poster.

    I'm not sure that I understand what you mean by 2 different birds or being impolite? I just thought this was a thread for those who needed help identifying a breed? I didn't realize it belonged to someone so I apologize if I offended anyone.
