    This my hen Ms.Chicken. She is very dignified and haughty at times...but I still love her.
    Her eggs are great.... One day she will make a gret mom.
    Any idea on what breed she is?

    I was first going to say a Brown Italian Leghorn. But, her earlobes look red? Not white. The coloration could be EE with a cross to a very lanky legged game bird breed.
    Age? She looks fully feathered and combed. Maybe 5-6 months. Is she laying yet?

    Maybe EE/OEG. She's colored like my EE. Maybe about 6 months.
     
  7. She does look very leghornish... But look at her leg color? It's green...

    She is a beauty though!

    Well, she has green legs, red ears and a smaller comb. Otherwise she matches my Danish brown leghorns exactly. So I will have to guess DBH X EE.
