    My friends little girl picked out this chicken yesterday. What breed is she? I forgot to ask. She fits in nicely with my Americauna, Barred rock and Dominique. 4 chickens and 1 turkey is enough![​IMG]

    And oh, one friend said it looked like a rooster? I clearly said egg laying chicken when I bought her.:/

    It's a Polish. Looks like a hen to me.

    I don't know anything about chickens. I inherited 3 that came with this house I just rented, had room for one more.
    What do you mean she is poorly colored? Can you please explain? Is this a breeder or show term?

    Poorly colored as she's supposed to look like this. Meaning not show quality, does not effect her laying, personality or ability to be a great backyard hen in any way.

    Her crest should be completely white and everywhere else black, It may get a little better after she molts. Since you are not breeding and I assume not showing, it doesn't matter.
