    Hi guys!!
    I'm trying to figure out what type of breed or mix my Piper may be! I originally picked her up at the local feed store where she was in the "meat" chicken bin. She is about 7 months old right now, she started to lay at 5 months actually! I feel like that's kind of young.. She is extremely vocal and LOVES to squack just so she can get attention from her sisters! She is also not as full and feathery as my other girls but is super heavy and feels like a STRONG girl. Any ideas would be great :)

    Her eggs are bigger than my Sussex breeds and are a light creamy tan!

    She definitely not a meat breed! She looks like some sort of hybrid that a leghorn has been used in, with that body shape and comb. I would say maybe some sort of red sex-link by the feathers, but most breeds used in those hybrids don't have that color legs.

    I want to see what others think, she sure is pretty!
