    We got Gertie as a pullet in the summer of '07 from a neighbor, and we've always wondered about her breed. Thanks.

    She looks like a New Hampshire hen. I have two of them. Pretty girl! Check her legs-seems like she may have scaly leg mites, but the picture could be deceptive.

    Thanks for your replies. I recently noticed her 'scaly' legs, and was about to post about it when speckledhen mentioned it here. I am researching scaly leg mites and will treat all 10 girls and their coop. Thanks again!
