    I was sold this bird as a week old swedish flower hen chick. Seriously doubting that it's a SFH. Can anyone guess it's breed and confirm its sex at 3.5 months old? Note it's bright yellow legs and single comb. Thank you so much for your help!

    Definitely not as Swedish Flower Hen. I'm not sure what breed it is, but it looks like a possible mix (with a barred breed or a game breed). The gender is correct; she's a pullet.

    X2 it looks like a mixed breed pullet.

    The farm she came from has a couple different breeds including Legbars. Would this be her breed or would she still be mixed? There doesn't appear to be any Barred Rocks at the farm.

    Hi neighbor--I'm in Grants Pass!

    Well, she's not a barred rock, but she did have a barred father. I know Legbar roosters carry barring, but I don't know enough about them to know if they'd throw a bird like this or not. Also not familiar with the Legbar body type. She wouldn't be a pure Legbar, she doesn't look like a pure anything--someone hopped a fence or got their eggs mixed up. If you paid $$$ for her, you should be contacting the seller and having them make it right for you. I'm sure you paid more than you would have for a mixed breed pullet.
