    [​IMG] I have no idea what hen this is. I need some help figuring it out before I show her in the fair.

    If she lays brown eggs, a partridge penedesena. If she lays white she is a light brown leghorn. Definitely not a welsummer. Sorry Cluky.

    X 2, would lean towards brown leghorn because of the lighter leg color.

    Thank you! The people at the IFA has had their chickens labled wrong for a few years now; they said she was an Ameraucana, and my Easter Eggers were considered Auraucaucanas to them.
