    Received this pullet from Meyer hatchery as a rare breed. Please help me to identify her. My husband thinks it's a Lakeshore... what do you think?

    I really don't know. But don't think lakeshore is a rare breed, technically it is a hybrid.

    I think maybe could be a Swedish Flower Hen?( lucky you!) Shannon R is correct the Lakeshore is not a rare breed,it is a hybrid- at least it wasn't listed as rare breed when I bought mine from Meyer in May,but of course I could be wrong!

    I actually had the same thought as to Swedish flower hen, but had to stop myself from mentioning it. ( I seriously typed out the suggestion then erased it) I'm really not too familiar with the breed and wasn't sure. I thought they had more white spots on them but, IDK

    Yes I was a bit hesitant as well lol,but figured maybe was still young ( didn't see age) and that maybe the plumage pattern wasn't fully developed yet.
    Would be interesting to know ,I really really wanted one and ordered one but sadly she passed away at 4 days( no obvious signs,just suddenly went downhill very fast) and was so upset,so I'm not really familiar either hehe!

    I wish I have one more Swedish( have 3 right now) I guess it's a Lakeshore egger. Found a picture online that looks similar to Screenshot_20191021-083941_Chrome.jpg mine
