    I am assuming it is a pullet. It is a chicken I am thinking of adopting from the Humane Society. They claim it is a female, so I am guessing it must be young. Here is the photo they have.

    I searched Google for white chicken breeds and saw a photo on this web page http://www.nsppa.ca/results.html of a White Phoenix pullet that looks similar to the one at the Humane Society, but with a longer tail. If that is the breed, I probably shouldn't get her because they are apparently not cold hardy and it can get very cold where I live! Please let me know if you have any ideas.

    It almost looks like a White Rock chicken (which are usually raised for meat), but I don't know much about chicken breeds. I just wanted to say that she's sooo cute! [​IMG]

    She looks like a Bantam Cornish, or some type of oriental game breed. I don't know enough about game birds to have any clue what kind though, sorry!

    She looks like a Game or Game X to me.

    Have you tried browsing www.Feathersite.com ?

    Her breed may come in several colors - so just searching for white chicken breeds probably wouldn't help.

    I think it maybe a Cornish cross, i guess it could be a Asil cross or possible Tuzo, someone posted some tuzos awhile back that looked like it with a few minor changes. But i would think more along the lines of a Cornish/Asil cross. Not a pure one though.

    Shes definately not a plymouth rock.

    I am guessing she is some sort of game, or game cross. I dont know enough about seperate game breeds to help you, though. Sorry.

    Quote:I agree. The way it is holding its tail is not that of a cornish. Think its more than likely a cross as Daniel stated.
