    Thank you for the expertise. Flo's previous owner said she was a couple of Chinese breeds but I didn't write them down.

    She looks like a blue Marans with her white skin, feathered legs, and single comb.

    My marans have a different type comb, but she could pass for twins with some of my olive eggers (Cream legbar X blue splash marans.). That would also make yours a mix of two breeds.

    I am thinking a blue marans with her light skin, single comb, body type, and leg feathering.

    Thank you all! It would have taken forever or never for me to figure it out because I have zero knowledge. Sounds unanimous.

    Marans are supposed to have a straight comb, as this bird does. If your birds have a different comb, they're likely crossed with something else.
    I agree this bird looks like a Marans. Is she laying? What color are her eggs?
