    I recently got this hen. But I don't know what breed she is. I was wondering if anyone knew what breed she was. Thanks for any help. She also has 5 toes. I don't know if that is normal for her breed or not.[​IMG]

    Are you sure it is a hen? It looks a lot like a Silver Gray Dorking cockerel?

    Well I can say it's a hybrid so it's crossed however from my untrained eye it's probably a silver laced Wyandotte x

    I still vote that is a cockerel, it does have face feathers I didn't see and with the five toes would go with Favorelle mix maybe even though it doesn't seem to have leg feathers.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I agree with Kelsie2290. With the five toes and its colors, it is a Faverolle x some kind of clean-legged breed cockerel. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
