    Hi everyone..
    Can anyone please tell me the breed and gender of this pullet? She is about 2 and a half month old.

    I think she is a Golden Campine. Is she?

    Where did you get her? She could maybe be a hatchery version, but her color pattern seems off. Here is the Feathersite page for them. http://feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Camp/BRKCampine.html She is barred to some extent, but then there are the neck feathers, just looking at her first glance my guess would have been Easter Egger X, wonder if she is a cross that happened to come up clean faced.

    Lots of breeds (half-breeds) can possess this coloration. A Campine will be about pure buff-colored (maybe a tone darker) around the head and neck though. Also, the type of barring (if you'd call it that) on a Campine is quite distinct and would be evident at this age. One of the genetics experts could recite all the breeds with a brown-red combination, but there are bunches of them.

    I would have ventured an EE-cross guess myself, but the single comb and clean face seem to take too many factors out of the EE camp. I can't really tell the leg color from the contrast in the photo, but if it were an "Ameracauna" trait, the legs look more slate than green. I would think if they were more slate, the comb and beard characteristics would be more preserved.

    My guess is that the legs are more black or charcoal, which with the single comb & clean face puts the cross somewhere else.

    A campine mix, I believe.

    Is it normal for her to fight with my broiler cockerel, like a rooster? Because she has just started to fight with him. [​IMG] Well, he looks much younger than her..

    It's normal for there to be scrapping in any group of chicks, male or female. Young birds are fighting for their place in the pecking order.
