    [​IMG]I have had this chicken for about 3months so it's about 9 months or so old. She (I think) is the sweetest chicken I've ever had! I want to show her in 4-H but I need to know her breed first.

    First I think a photo of the chicken in question would be helpful [​IMG]

    It won't allow me to post a picture. She is mostly white. Small in size. She has a black speckled head. And a black tipped tail. She has certain spots that are a light brown on her wings back and near her tail. She is also very mellow. I got her from a friend.

    Yes I had problems posting photos at first so just to find out the problem do you have pictures of her in your computer ... next at the top of the page you can find some little box's one box has a smiley face and to the left is a squire and it might look like hils with a dot in the upper left hand corner that box will help you put the pictures in your photo album and yes they need to be in the BYC photo album for you to use them ......

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I hope you can get your picture uploaded. Trying to ID a bird without a picture is like shooting in the dark. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your pic up.

    Are her feet feathered or bare?
    What color are her legs?
    Is she laying and, if so, what color eggs?
    What type of comb does she have?
