    Here's a photo of her. She was adopted fom an animal shelter as an adult three years ago with two other hens (a dark cornish and a ?? that have since passed on).
    I've been looking at several sites for photos but cant seem to narrow down the possibilities.
    Any ideas?

    My guess would be an Easter Egger/ Rhode Island Red mix? Whatever she is, she is pretty!

    She has a white lobe on the side of her face which could be an indication of leghorn.......possibly brown leghorn crossed with something. She is a nice looking bird, healthy looking!

    Quote:Just curious but what color eggs does she lay? You could be correct that she may be crossed with a brown leghorn, ours is a beautiful chicken I agree.

    Light brown eggs, and she's turning out to be a great first time mom, having easily adopted the week old hatchery chicks!

    My first thought was EE and "something else". Many of my EE's have her coloring, but the single comb says she's mixed with another breed. A few of my EE's lay brown eggs.
