    Is it possible Golden Lace Wyandotte/Rhode Island Red cross? She sure is pretty!

    I can't figure her out... LOL I thought she came from TSC bantam bin. But she is larger than a bantam and smaller than a standard. LOL

    Sometimes there will be standards that are smaller than normal, or bantams that are larger than normal. I've also had bantam/standard crossbreeds that were sized almost exactly midway between their two parents. She has a rather refined head, which makes me wonder if she might be part OEG.

    Another possibility: She might not be a mixed breed! She actually has the shape and colorings of a partridge chantecler hen...here's a picture of one from another forum
    (forum link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=134936) now the picture...

    That's what I actually think she is...
    ~Whittni ;D

    p.s. these hens are so sweet in nature, I bet your hen is very nice as well!

    I don't know what she is, but is it just me or do her legs have something funky going on? Is it just the pic?
