    [​IMG] Hey everyone. I joined BYC a few months ago, and was wondering what breed this hen was. She is a heavy bird, and is about 4 months old. Any ideas?[​IMG]

    Australorp and Jersey giant are two options. Check the bottom of the feet, pink is Australorp and yellow jersey giant.

    Thanks for the help. We determined that the hen is a Jersey Giant. Thanks
