    Hey guys! So I bought this hen about 1 month ago. She's 6 months old according to the guy I purchased her from. They told me that she was a Iowa Blue chicken. I looked online and she looks nothing like one. Iowa blues are supposed to lay brown eggs but hers are cream white. She a pretty chicken and I don't think it's showing on these pics but she has a tail that goes straight up with really dark grey feathers. Please help me identify her.

    Looks like a Blue Andalusian, but given the Rose comb she would have to be a mix thereof.

    that's what I was originally thinking...however she has the rose comb so definitely would be mixed.

    I'd really like to see a profile shot of her standing to see exactly her tail and wing set. That is very telling as well, especially with the rose comb.
