    She's not a Welsummer as Welsummers have yellow legs (as in Miss Dotties' pics).

    Which hen are you asking about? The black bird looks like a Black Australorp, the middle brown bird could be a Welsummer, and the bird on the right looks like an Easter Egger.

    Yours is brighter colored...maybe the lighting

    I would love to here what people think our hens are mixed with!

    They HAVE TO be the same breed .....they've gotta be the breed that makes them that color.

    Is yours a bantam? Mine is a large bantam and her eggs are almost store bought size! Here is another pic of her:
