In the Brooder
- May 16, 2013
I got this pullet in with a group of mixed breed layers. They all ended up being really small...like OEG small, with the same build and coloring I would expect from that mix. A couple of them were obviously Silkie mixes. And then there is this gal. She is about 6 months old. BIG bird. Like almost as big as my purebred Salmon Faverolle rooster big. I would put her at over 8 lbs already. With a huge, squishable breast and the coolest personality. Grey legs, floppy comb. She just started laying and they are brown/tan. She was not hand raised, but she will follow me anywhere, just talking away!The people I got her from hatch eggs for people and split the hatch, then sell the ones they keep, so she could have came from a multitude of people. I have my pens of purebreds, so having these mixed breeds is like a box of chocolates!So....all you chicken experts....what IS this precious gal??!
