    Hi [​IMG] On my way home form work this evening I came across a couple of chickens free ranging. There was one chicken that was really pretty & unique...she was a dark brown color, with these robin egg blue color speckles all over her body! So cute!

    I have been researching for over two hours trying to find out what breed this chicken was, and I can't find it anywhere [​IMG] Can anyone help me? Thanks!

    I did look at the Sussex breed, and the speckling looked the same, but I couldn't find any colors close to what this chicken had. The blue-laced red wyandotte looks sort of similar, but the Sussex it more closer. Hmmmm, I wonder what this myster chicken is haha! [​IMG]

    Maggie, I am soooo not above knocking on doors and asking. When you drive past their home tomorrow, ask the owners, that's what I would do.
