    Given the black flecking on her, I would say she is a mixed breed; something like an Austra White (Black Australorp rooster X White Leghorn hen).

    Looks like a Splash. Andalusian? They have kind of slate colored legs and even females have large combs and wattles since they are a Mediterranean breed.

    This is mine. Sorry the picture isn't more close up. And her comb isn't so big because she is only 17 weeks old.

    I wasn't sure . I am fairly sure she was a chick I got with my spring 15 order from McMurray. But I went over my order today and did not buy a splash andalusian?? Is that a rare breed , since they do send usually a free rare breed chick?/ I thought it might be one of mine who mixed it up lol, but she is too old. The chicks that were hatched in house are younger.

    Did you order any Blue Andalusians? When you order Blue Andalusian, there is about a 25% chance of getting a black or splash instead.

    I looked back I actually ordered a "blue andalusian" chick , reading up on that am I right to say that they can turn out blue, black or white?

    Not white, but splash. Splash have two copies of the Blue dilute gene, making them look pale grey/white with flecks of darker grey/blue.
