    Does anyone know what this white hen is? She has grayish legs and some gray on the tips of her feathers. She is 15 wks old and her comb has barely sprouted... it's pink and she has no wattles yet. I originally thought leghorn but now I'm leaning towards jersey giant bc of the leg color

    The pic is really blurry for the white hen. Jersey Giants i thought only come in black. The one next to her looks like an easter egger....maybe if you have a better pic it would help.

    Her color is splash. I believe her breed is an Andalusian. I'd expect an Andy to have more comb at this age, but she could be just slower to mature. She should also get white earlobes, I can't see if she has them or not. The body shape fits the Andalusian, though, as well as the leg color and straight comb.

    What hatchery did she come from?

    I ordered from McMurray s. She came in a variety pack and they didn't send a list. I thought she was too white to be a andy

    She's a Splash Andalusian. She's got two copies of the Blue gene. That's what makes her look so light.

    Ok.. I was leaning towards a splash jersey with the slow development of her comb and stuff. I thought at 15 wks she would be more developed. I guess I'll do some research about splash Andy's now
