    Hi guys! Gramma Chicken is my oldest, friendliest chicken. She was a hardware store chick that I probably should've discussed with my husband before buying. ... but she started one of my most favorite hobbies. Since she was an impulsive decision, I never paid too much attention to breeds until I ordered my second batch. I'm posting some pictures and hoping someone can identify her breed. Thank you in advance! She lays light brown eggs sometimes Huge eggs and will be 3 in the spring.[​IMG]

    I know what she is, but can't think of the breed name.... Perhaps someone else will know.

    She's probably one of the multiple versions of sex links.

    Thanks guys! I can settle with a New Hampshire Red Mix as her breed [​IMG]. I actual just started incubating my first egg (from her and Kirk, my Houdan rooster). So whenever I have a successful hatch (cheap incubator, so expecting low hatch rate) their baby will be a super mixed chick. Thanks again for your input!
